Pavitra Wickramasinghe: Gone

Video

‘Gone’ is made of photographs from the Choansan Mountain in Northern Seoul, South Korea. Wickramasinghe photographed the ancient tombs hidden among the trees over time, capturing the dancing shadows among the still monuments, compelled by their forgotten place in the city. Once strong stones are weathered over centuries overtaken by the surrounding forest. Their place marks the progress of time and the collective forgetting by the city.
