"Migration of Memory"

Annu Palakunnathu Matthew (I)

Friday, March 02 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM

Matthew's recent work is a striking blend of still and moving imagery that takes advantage of the uncertainty between the "reality" of a photograph and digital manipulation to prompt the viewer to reexamine and reconsider parallel identities and histories. "Open Wound - Stories of Partition - India & Pakistan" explores the powerful appeal of family photographs through ephemeral photo-animations combined with oral history, and how they shape identity and memory. Matthew will also discuss her recent social media collaborative project "Refuge in Rhode Island" which tells the stories, through images and words, of recent Syrian refugees to Rhode Island.
