Seema Mattu is a fluid Valmiki artist, whose practice is framed as a theme park - known as SEEMAWORLD.
SEEMAWORLD is an immersive, multi-channel realm. It's comprised of the mimicry of multiple facilities and services - which act as portals to a specific aspect of SEEMAWORLD.
Through the welding of both 2D and 3D mixed-media, themes explored include: the system of caste, queer sorcery and gender taxonomy.
Within the imagined spaces of SEEMAWORLD, sit multiple mixed-media narratives - all framed against systems of caste, race, sex and gender.
Floating in pink and blue virtual space, is the 3D model of the uterus: Youterus. This symbol of rebirth is a vascular, interactive map through which the interlocking narratives of this world can be explored.
Follow the paths of Youterus, and chart your way through SEEMAWORLD. Click! And the stories within Youterus emerge: expansive, generative and multi-channel.
You'll also find archival, personal and academic materials which give insight into the development of SEEMAWORLD as a practice and Youterus as a hub.
