Anoli Perera is a visual artist and co-founder of Theertha International Artists Collective. Over more than two decades she has been developing intricate works that engage with crafts-based approaches and the socio-historical landscape of Sri Lanka. Perera has been outlining narratives at the intersection of colonialism and feminist legacies thereby bringing a personal reading to larger histories and cultural memory. In her recent exhibition “The City. Janus-Faced” the artist explores many faces of hyper urbanism and the paradoxical living in the metropolis - Delhi. Through fragile watercolor on paper works that take on a sculptural form, Perera marks the circuits of daily surveillance in the skyscrapers that become a closed grid of solitary existence.
