ELYATO & OBUUMU BWE SAAWA (TIME AND UNITY)- ARTLAB AFRICA RESIDENCY 2019

01 Mar 2024 - 31 Dec 2050

 

Time duration: 39 seconds
Year: 2019
Life is a gift of Time. The clock wise movement of the people from different parts of The world with one center reflacts the unity.
During ArtLab 2019, I experienced such a diversity in people and place. Participants coming from various parts of Uganda, but also
from much further afield with many nationalities. In this art piece I wanted to represent this transcultural experience visually.
Using symbolism and representation, we are presented with a wheel of various prime colours symbolising time and diversity of culture.
This art piece is activated by the presence of the participants and the diversity they come to symbolise.

ARTLAB AFRICA RESIDENCY 2019

Elyato (Boat)
The screened video will create an space to feel a part of Uganda(Dewe Fish Landing Site). Boat is a part of culture of Bangladesh
as well as Uganda. Its an intentional presantation for the cultural collaboration of two different countries as the boat meets in
a center for both. Within this piece there is a tension between motion and motionless. The boat is rendered unnaturally in a
stationary position, but the element of video releases it into an experiential art piece.
