Video Projection Mapping and Performance
As part of the Social Weavers project we have created a series of public performances called Hidden Lilly, a series of public events that could introduce Social Weavers project to an urban audience. We created a video projection mapping narrative and performance that we projected onto architecture of public spaces of various institutions. Our goal was to engage an audience in critical dialogue about the struggles and challenges of the handloom weaving communities we had come to know and bring their voices to the center of this conversation. This narrative was delivered through a long-standing tradition in India of storytelling and performance, along with photographic and video works we created during our visits to the weaving village in 2016 and 2018. Most recently we were invited to presented Hidden Lilly at the Chennai Photo Biennale in March 2019, India, with our collaborator G. Craig Hobbs. Hidden Lily created a dynamic narrative experience for Biennale audiences mapped onto the architectural surface of the historic Government College of Fine Arts in Chennai. (slide show below)
Hidden Liliy was also shown In December of 2016 at the National Gallery of Modern Art, Bangalore and in November of 2017 at the Museum of Goa, Goa, and the Maharaja Sayajirao University, Baroda.
