Tibetan Video Installation: Burning Against the Dying of the Light

Kasturi posted on 21st December

Veteran Indian-Tibetan filmmaking couple, Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam’s first solo exhibition, Burning Against the Dying of the Light, has opened at Khoj Studios in New Delhi on 10th December 2015.

Burning Against the Dying of the Light is a range of the artists’ video installations and films. The exhibition comprises a selection of works that investigates both Tibet’s ongoing political struggle, and the transformations that are taking place in the Himalayan region where they live, wrought by deliberate colonial policies, the impact of globalisation, or a combination of the two. This is a multimedia installation which examines and contextualises the politics of protest in Tibet, especially in their latest manifestation, self-immolations.

It comes at a time where there is a necessity for citizens and artists to raise their voices in the name of humanitarian causes and the protection of basic civil liberties.
