Residency in Theertha Artists Collective , Colombo- Srilanka
Short Video-8.26 minutes, 2011.
Galle Face is a place on the beach where people gather in the evenings with their family friends, loved ones and enjoy the beauty of the sea, watch sunset, play beautiful kites with kaleidoscopic brilliance. Sharp at 6pm Army Men- very religiously lower the flag of Srilanka showing respect to the Soldiers – people who lost their life for nation. Being an outsider it was like watching two contrast things happen at the same time- Where people propose to co-exist with the contrast situation.
I have juxtaposed 2 different visuals of the same palace trying to correspond between the qualities and energies of that place and evoke the same within.
