பொக்கிஷங்களின் பெட்டி

Artist: Kitty Ritig “வீடு” ஒருபோதும் வெரும் ஓர்  ஆக்கக் கூற்றாக இருந்ததில்லை. முன்பை விட, இப்போது வீடு ஒரு உறுதியான ஆதாயத்திற்கும் மேலானது என்ற விழிப்புணர்வும் ஏற்றுக்கொள்ளலும் வெளிச்சத்திற்கு வந்து கொண்டிருக்கின்றது… ஒரு நேரத்தில், “வீட்டிலேயே உணரவும்” என்ற வழக்கமான நிஜ வாழ்க்கை பதிப்பை  உலகம் தீர்மானித்தபோது, வழக்கத்திற்கு மாறான, அறிமுகமில்லாத வீடுகளின் மீது சந்தேகம் கொள்வது வழக்கமற்றது அல்ல, உதாரணமாக,…

Featured Artists

Natalie Soysa

  
Natalie Soysa was one of 2 artistes commissioned to create work around GROW, a project that identified Post-War Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women in the North of Sri Lanka in the 8 years since the country’s bloody and brutal civil war ended in 2009.

Natalie went on to create Mother North Rising, a visual investigation that manifested in a series of photo-essays and documentary film that give voice to the women of the north. She interviewed 10 mothers from Kilinochchi, Mannar, Mullaitivu, Jaffna and Vavuniya, examining their personal stories, juxtaposing them with the wider geopolitical context in which the narratives occur.
