Yellow Patch (2011), shot on 35mm, on location in India, opens at de Appel's new permanent location in Amsterdam. Inspired by trade and immigration routes across the Indian Ocean between India and Africa, Yellow Patch is an exploration of space with an evocative use of sound.
“This blatant jab at past colonial masters is as close as Bhimji ever gets to outright political commentary in her languid, lyrical filmmaking.”
Ossian Ward, Time Out
“Bhimji's camerawork is never hectic or quick. There is no rapid shifting from scene to scene. The camera always pans slowly. We see a little of something, and then as the camera pulls back, a fuller view emerges. It is a meditation upon objects, a fingering of their surfaces, a probing of the meaning of their presence and their condition.”
Michael Glover, The Independent
Yellow Patch is generously supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund, Arts Council England, de Appel arts centre Netherlands, The New Art Gallery Walsall and individual donors, with co-producer/executive producer Artsadmin.
