Mountains, Myths & Metaphors

The 2012 Sethusamudram project will focus on using new media and metaphors to explore the connections with India and Sri Lanka. In the changing world how do artists negotiate the self, nation and the many narratives that are part of our identity as individuals and nations. Myths and metaphors are possibly the ideal visual language to negotiate these shared cultural geography and history/mythology that is part of this project. The artist’s recollect memory and personal narratives and it connect’s with oral history and mythology in an effort to speak about the personal and political.
