MONITOR 12 in Colombo, Sri Lanka

December 6, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

MONITOR 12 in Colombo, Sri Lanka

Curated by Oliver Husain, Otty Widasari, Yuki Aditya
Screening at Theertha Artists Collective on 6 December 2017

SAVAC is pleased to premier Monitor 12 at Theertha Artists Collective in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Curated by Oliver Husain (Toronto), Otty Widasari and Yuki Aditya (Jakarta) the works in Figures Pointing Outside the Frame consider the peripheries of the image as significant as the content within.

The curators write: “Whether film, video, or a still image, the technology dictates the parameters of the frame. Decisions an image maker makes regarding the composition, duration, performance, and location further contribute to a viewer’s experience. Collaboration is formed between the technology, image maker, and subjects—though this collaboration is often expanded upon with elements, situations, and conditions beyond what is scripted. In this way, the program advocates for the viewer to consider the environmental, labour, historical, economical, gendered, and social conditions that influence the constructed experience.”

This marks the second year that SAVAC invites a local curator to collaborate with an international curator(s).  This model encourages the international dialogues we are expanding while also exposing Toronto audience to global perspectives.
