Event Description

Reflective Echoes Exhibition

By Sejal Surendra Sood

At Sofitel So Bangkok


Sofitel So Bangkok and Sejal Surendra Sood announced dates for the inaugural

“Reflective Echoes” art exhibition, reinforcing the hotel's commitment to art, design, and

Using repetitive movement as a starting point for this latest series of oils on canvas, Sejal

Surendra Sood reflects on the concept of disappearing into meditative space while rooted

in reality. Her visceral works utilize the surrender of the mind to the space inhabited at

that point of time and the freedom that comes with that surrender. A classically trained

dancer, Sejal channels the meditative state induced through her movements to blur the

lines between her dancing and her art; and between her as a performer and the spectator.

The artist explores three concepts: reflection through repetition; freedom through

repetition; and becoming one with the space, hence Reflective Echoes. The

repetition (of the spinning dance move) gives her the knowledge, the comfort and the

confidence to repeat over and over again the same movement, much like all in nature.

That deep meditative space is where her artworks of dancers caught in ‘a moment in

time’ spring from; movements that are sometimes blurry and at others sharp echoing the

Her focus essentially is the universality of movement, its relevance to life and the sheer

beauty of it. A part of repeating a movement is in the surrendering, letting your body take

over, letting your entire being just exists and move without any instruction - something

that we all do but never stop to think about. Sejal pauses long enough to transfer these

An MIT trained mathematician Sejal also delves into her Indian heritage for inspiration.

Her vision is also influenced by the power of mathematics that is her first love. To

paraphrase Bertrand Russell ‘mathematics is capable of an artistic excellence as great as

that of any music, because it gives in absolute perfection that combination, characteristic

of great art, of godlike freedom, with the sense of inevitable destiny; because, in fact, it

constructs an ideal world where everything is perfect but true.”

The “Reflective Echoes” art exhibition will be open to the public from June 12th to 12th

July 2014 at the Street Lobby on the ground floor of Sofitel So Bangkok.
