Magnetic fields of opposing charges — movement against static, a dusty palate, a neon splash, tension and release, The Palimpsest Series invites viewers to lose themselves within textured dreamscapes and then it deliberately breaks this spell with shards of photographic realism.
This is the first time The Palimpsest Series, photographs from Sri Lanka, India and Myanmar, is being exhibited in its entirety and with the Palimpsest Soundscape. It is apt that this exhibition debut in Abu Dhabi where the culture simultaneously embraces international influences and local tradition. Here, like The Palimpsest Series photographs, traces of tradition burn through layers of contemporary perception to form an indelible palimpsest.
Museum-quality exhibitions of art and culture across historical and contemporary topics, with a special emphasis on subjects of both regional concern and international significance.
