The Wind Will Take Us

The Wind Will Take Us

Rathnasiri Wickramanayake National Training Center is situated in the beautiful hills of Hanthana in Kandy amidst the green and lush tea estates. The clouds and their movement in this beautiful area carry you to your dreams. I’ve done this project during the Theertha International Artists’ Workshop in Kandy, Sri Lanks in 2008. It consisted of two parts. For the first part, I photographed fellow artists’ portraits as if they slept and showed the photos as an installation. The second part was a collaborative work with some of the fellow artists, I photographed their hands, feet, and sleeping faces then asked them to assemble a self-portrait montage and create their own dream with the photos of their own body.
