Stranded An art exhibition by Sivasubramanium Kajendran
Art Gallery, University of Jaffna
28 March - 1 April narrates yet another layer to the Sri Lankan epic of the displacement, trauma, loss, displacement, pain, loss, displacement, survival, interpretation that future generations will find incredulous, even unimaginable.
Thavippu, the Tamil title is an ironic play on the hidden meanings within that word. The artist seeks in his stranded self mind and body and life state to deal with the scars of war, the legacy of loss by creating powerful images of that state of 'thavippu'
