Pavitra Wickramasinghe

Pavitra Wickramasinghe (b. 1980)

Pavitra’s practice is inherently multi-disciplinary and explores conventions of seeing. She has been preoccupied with new ways of conceptualizing the moving image and experiments with video, animation and installation. Pavitra‘s work attempts to draw the viewer in through curiosity, intrigue and a sense of wonder while hovering between experiment and play. Her current work is an exploration of notions of traveling, fluidity of place and memory. She uses light and shadows as extentions of the projected image to create installations where the viewer occupies filmic space instead of being physically removed from the work.
