Opening: Transnational Proximities
Transnational Proximities Sabes Sugunasabesan, photographer-poet of the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora, and Anna Laine, artist-anthropologist from Sweden, come together in their continuous investigations across South Asia and Europe. They share the notion of being situated on the border of insider and outsider, differently founded on the one hand in diasporic existence and on the other in extended fieldwork. Sugunasabesan and Laine both use photography as a central tool in their research, of how relations between people and places can be grasped, and of how complex life-worlds can be conveyed in visual and material forms. They aim to engage the viewers in ambiguous shifts between proximity and distance, hopelessness and calls for justice, through a linked focus on the transnational effects of a civil war and of discrimination based on caste.
