Origin of Species

“In this series, Origin of Species, Rithika Merchant explores hybrid creatures. She describes this project as an investigation into ‘the duality within nature and the idea of many selves in conversation with each other.’ In her most recent series, Merchant deals with comparative mythology. As she describes the series, ‘I explore the common thread that runs through different cultures and religions. Similar versions of all these myths, stories and ideas are shared by cultures all around the world.I use creatures and symbolism that are part of my personal visual vocabulary to explore these narratives.'”
