Raśmi is part of the official selection of the 32nd Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF), in a new curated section ‘Undercurrent” which includes moving image works by artists, and recent films that experiment with the medium while examining urgent topics today. An undercurrent moves in a different direction from any surface current, charting new pathways in a subterranean realm of latent possibilities.

“…Raśmi snaps in and out to the beat of an atmospheric soundscape, and are readily replaced by stills of Earth’s other ephemeral occurrences. As each set of images becomes increasingly abstract, they transcend their everydayness, inching towards an exploration of the expansive scope of the cosmic. The film locates the personal within the universe, attesting to the visceral experience of living, regardless of what form it may take.”

Ishara Art Foundation presents Growing Like A Tree curated by Sohrab Hura, an exhibition that looks at regional histories of image-making through a visual and sonic excavation of place, memory and culture.

Referencing the interconnected spheres of contemporary artistic practice, this show considers photography as a locus in an expanded field of art that includes videos, books and sound installations. Hura’s individual and collective journeys through photography and moving image over the years have presented both a form of rooting and uprooting of places as markers of identity. Through this exhibition, he maps a network of past and present collaborators with 14 artists and collectives from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Germany, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and Singapore, seeking to expand the framework of boundaries set out by the geographical context of South Asia. Together they create a space where multiple voices and experiences are brought into dialogue with one another, capturing dualities in which organic growth is matched with resource extraction, the archival is juxtaposed with the contemporary, and the magic of the mundane is seen through children’s eyes.

The ensemble of artists and collectives in the exhibition includes Aishwarya Arumbakkam, Anjali House, Bunu Dhungana, Farah Mulla, Jaisingh Nageswaran, Katrin Koenning, Munem Wasif, Nida Mehboob, Nepal Picture Library, Reetu Sattar, Sarker Protick, Sathish Kumar, Sean Lee, Yu Yu Myint Than, and a citation of Dayanita Singh along with site-specific interventions by Sohrab Hura.
