Kali Scroll Sari

The Seeking Kali Sari is making it's debut in Boston next weekend (May 6th) at Mobius in Boston as part of the Wearable Art Runway Show.  The Sari is a unique piece, hand painted by William Evertson of the artist group Seeking Kali using images from the Kali Shadow Theater, a poem by Ria Vanden Eynde and a school of fish which are a signature icon of member Susan Shulman. The sari is inspired by oriental scrolls painted on silk and is designed to be modeled by two people. As the models weave their way down the runway various portions of the theater narrative are exposed to view.

The material for the piece is 20 feet long by 3.5 feet wide.  The photo above shows a section of the piece in progress.
Mobius (est. 1977) is a non-profit, artist-run organization, whose mission is to generate, shape and test experimental art. Mobius is located at 725 Harrison Ave, Boston.
The Runway show is curated by Mobius artists Jane Wang, Allison Safford and James Ellis Coleman.

We are offering the book for $75.00 plus $5.00 shipping/handling through our Paypal account which can be accessed on this page.

Shipping is via the postal service - expect delivery within 5-7 days (7-10 for overseas)

Our book began with the idea that for the Italian exhibit we wanted to produce this flip style edition and make it appear that we are waving farewell to the late Ray Johnson, an artist whose influence we all fondly acknowledge.

The making of the KaliRay Flip Book.

The images used in the book were photographed in each artist's home location of Canada, Belgium and USA then reassembled to produce the merging of the artists into a single person waving.  For this edition the color symbols were introduced by Susan Shulman.
