Joothi's staging of deliberate unseen in an active form facilitating the experience of truth, not mediating it but, at the same time, refusing confrontation, with the regime of images, on unequal terms , melting into the generalized resistance of the excluded, occupying cracks in the strategic monolith of control; unseen as an active form is able to destabilize not only the underlying capitalist logics but also western modes of critique.
The first thing to manifest itself, in Transparency, is the collapse of any analysis of the work; the irrational element is a vehicle through which to clarify the somewhat conduced, collective psychic terminology of the current historical and social moment; she addresses the the death of meaning thorough a process of neutralization, first of painting and sculpture and later of objects;Transparency best of all consists of an art-work justified by its own interior logic and makes no promises to supplicate to exterior rules, evoking the complex nature of the events in which her subjects were entangled, as well as, the related contexts, most of which would be lost in the process of media perceptions.
Transparency is not a commentary on reality; it's a reworking of what Murakami refers to as a "super-flat"; Transparency catalyse turbulent linguistic activity that anticipates encounter with the progressive demise of facile political solutions and, induce the spectator to become a sensitive instrument that receives waves of different association and meanings, sometime in a dramatic way.
Joothi's attempt to produce image by neutralizing its own tradition reiterates Transparency's duability and encourage new interrogation into her process to induce unseen with presence .
