Yellow Patch

Inspired by trade and immigration routes across the Indian Ocean between India and Africa, Yellow Patch (2011) is an exploration of space with a characteristically evocative use of sound. 

The film focuses on distinct details of the landscape and architecture. Yellow Patch is part of a major body of film works that includes Waiting (2007) and Jangbar (2014).

Yellow Patch was generously supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund, Arts Council England, de Appel arts centre Netherlands, The New Art Gallery Walsall and individual donors.

“… within the empty spaces of elegant decay she depicts, I see the patina of people and the breadth of existence that it would be hard to find in a hundred straightforward stories or cinematic clichés.”
