Pavitra Wickramasinghe is a multidisciplinary artist mainly concerned with new ways of conceptualizing the moving image and conventions of seeing. Her current work is an exploration of notions of traveling, fluidity of place and memory. She uses light and shadows as extensions of the projected image to create installations where the viewer occupies filmic space instead of being physically removed from the work. Selected exhibitions include: OBORO (Montréal),  Kunst Kraft Werk (Germany), SIGHTINGS, Leonard & Bina EllenArt Gallery (Montréal), Yeosu International Art Festival (South Korea), Centre des Arts Enghien-­‐les- ­‐Bains (France), Cable Factory (Finland), Centro Cultural del Matadero (Spain) and Galerie  B-­‐312 (Montréal) among others. She is a recipient of numerous residencies, awards and grants including, Art Omi (NY), La Chambre Blanche (Québec), Pépinières Européennes pour jeunes artistes, (Spain), UNESCO-­‐Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Programme, Changdong Art Studio, National Museum of Contemporary Art (South Korea), Canada Council for the Arts and The Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art.
