Artist Statement

Hema Shironi is a multidisciplinary artist who now lives in Killinochchi and recently completed her MFA at Beacon House National University Lahore. Shironi’s art practice is deeply rooted in observance of the history of colonization, civil war, displacement and migration, which she highlights through personal stories and experiences of living in Sri Lanka. The idea of identity in her practice has given shape to nostalgia by recreating the places the artist lived in for short periods of time. Using different sources and references to critique the human-made spaces, and the changes in environment due to human behavior. She explores political themes around the subjects of domesticity, language, culture, memory, religious myths, gender politics, tenacity and fragility.
