Exhibition

Colomboscope returns to the Rio complex after the 2015 festival edition that brought alive the exhibition ‘Shadow Scenes.’ The cinema and former hotel were directly impacted by the Black July riots of 1983 and are ever since etched as a memory capsule of the communal violence that ensued.

In the interim years, while this living ruin has remained the same, the surrounding kompannavidiya (slave island) neighbourhood has experienced immense transformations; with local communities in flux and forced to transit from their traditional homes and a rising demographic of migrant workers. The artists participating in Sea Change take note of these shifts that rise and fall with the ocean swell and the infrastructural desires which push this coastline to its maximum threshold.
