Karine Bonneval brings her creativity to Cinnamon Colomboscope from the 2nd to the 7th of September
Cinnamon Colomboscope is one of the most important events of the cultural season in Colombo. It was founded by the EUNIC Sri Lanka (European Union National Institutes for Culture) with the collaboration of the Goethe-Institut, the British Council and the Alliance Française de Kotte. This festival is now a well-known launch pad for contemporary art in Sri Lanka and for the first time this year, a local team was in charge of its organization.
This year the Cinnamon Colomboscope explores and questions the encounter between art, culture, innovation and environment. This 5th edition’s goal is to push artists, activists, researchers and the general public of Colombo to put into perspective their way of leaving now and in the future.
In this context, the visual artist Karine Bonneval will create an artwork specially for the occasion. Karine Bonneval uses different type of creative media –sculpture, video, installation, painting, etc – in order to understand the paradoxical relations between humans and nature. She combines the artificial and the natural, the industrial and the artisanal; she questions the adaptation and the dialog of humans with their environment.
Coming directly from France, Karine Bonneval will present her unique artwork from the 2nd of September at the Maradana Terminus railway station.
