Description

The Honolulu Museum of Art presents internationally recognized artist Shahzia Sikander’s immersive 15-minute, 45-foot-wide video animation melding her signature contemporary take on Indo-Persian miniature painting with 21st-century digital technology that she created for the Sharjah Biennial in 2013. The multichannel installation, composed of hundreds of digitally animated images taken from Sikander’s watercolor, gouache and ink paintings, and featuring atmospheric music and sound by Du Yun, will fill the entire Henry R. Luce Gallery. Visitors can take a seat in front of the wide, arced screen and let mesmerizing imagery flow over them, as it builds in intensity.
