Artists / PAVITRA WICKRAMASINGHE (QC-CA/LK)
With this new installation, Wickramasinghe pursues her exploration of shadows as an extension of the moving image. She evokes the poetics of travelling, place, memory and disorientation, and extolls the merits of distance. Her delicate mobile sculptures bring together the precision of a machine-made object and the refinement of an artisan’s hand. She decomposes and re-assembles the moving image from an exact analysis of her structures, as would an artificial intelligence, yet she translates the act of seeing, projecting and animating with the depth and fragility embodied by the human experience.
