Pavitra Wickramasinghe was born in Sri Lanka and now lives in Montréal. Her practice is inherently multi-disciplinary and explores conventions of seeing. She is preoccupied with new ways of conceptualizing the moving image and experiment with stop-motion animation, sculpture and video. Pavitra uses the installation context as a strategy where the viewer occupies the filmic space rather than being physically removed from the work. Her work attempts to draw the viewer in through curiosity, intrigue and a sense of wonder while hovering between experiment and play.
