Pallavi Agarwala: Closing Reception

March 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Closing Reception

In collaboration with TAIS (Toronto Animated Image Society), SAVAC has hosted Delhi-based animator Pallavi Agarwal since  March 3, 2017. Her residency comes to a close on Thursday March 30, concluding with a presentation of the animation she has been developing in studio at TAIS during her residency titled Home Sweet Home.  The public is welcome to join us at the closing reception, where a large-scale digital projection of Home Sweet Home will be presented with Pallavi Agarwala in attendance.

Agarwala’s “Home Sweet Home” draws from narratives of migration by political refugees. Responding to documentation of experiences of recent immigrants to Canada, the work centers on the sensory experience of transition, and the feelings that accompany displacement when structures of shelter (homes and communities) and their attendant relationships are threatened or untethered.

A selection of Pallavi Agarwala’s work can be seen at the Theatre Centre’s Library Gallery until April 23, 2017. Public programming for Agarwala’s residency have also included an artist talk, two animation workshops.
