About the Event
THE INEVITABILITY OF CIRCUMSTANCES
Six artists speak to each other, and all of us, exploring the ideas of recurrence and resilience in contemporary Sri Lanka.
Two women and four men, from different generations, of different ethnicities, from different geographies, and representing a broad canvas of socio-political backgrounds, reflect on the paradox of a country that has changed rapidly in some ways, yet remains unchanged in others.
Their work is rooted in their childhood memories and politics of their circumstances. They resonate deeply with collective sentiments shared by many who live on the island.
Through a variety of mediums, these artists reflect, contest and explore achievement, loss, missed opportunities, grief and human resilience, and events that have had an uncanny capacity to recur.
