Description

DOCUMENTARY PROOF WHICH LEAVES NO REASON FOR DOUBT

Please join us for an evening with Pallavi Paul as she leads us in a collaborative text reading and talks about her artistic practice.

The evening will incorporate a participative performance: a collective reading, in morse, of the official file of a secret agent Noor Inayat Khan who worked for the SOE during WW2. The file has been reproduced on a 73ft long scroll- it hosts many provocations about the nature of history writing, story telling, time and disappearance. The piece takes on a sculptural quality: it produces a sensation of being in a state of meditation and cacophony at once.

In her talk, Paul will explore some of the philosophical ideas around formal non-fiction, cinema and the notions of truth. Drawing from a background of storytelling, filmmaking, and experimentation, her ideas push boundaries to explore new horizons and unravel new meanings and possibilities. For Pallavi, the medium of documentary becomes “resistance, possibility, a second horizon on which things can happen.”

Event will be streamed at livestream.com/risd.

Sponsored by RISD Painting with generous support from the Vikram and Geetanjali Kirloskar Visiting Scholar in Painting endowment.
