Parasols

Sara Pathirane

Dance video work Parasols is a dreamlike flit in a meadow lined with large plague root leaves. The work is like a moving postcard from colonial times in East Asia. The music of the dance video leads to soundscape reminds of sounds in between plants and soundscape of dewdrops.

Her works have been shown for example at Taiga-Space, Saint-Petersburg (2016), Colombo Art Biennale (2016) and Kiasma (2010, 2013).
