Review: ‘The Tent’, The Tetley, Leeds, February – June 2019

“The resulting 20-minute film is quietly and profoundly affecting. Arunasalam’s camera captures the still moments of the women’s vigil as they sit silently, make tea, read or sweep the floor. It also features, by contrast, on a split screen, footage of the crowds and noise of media attention on an anniversary marking 500 days of consecutive protest. Arunasalam came to filmmaking through journalism and this is the first time his work has been shown in a gallery setting.” (Two hard-hitting new exhibitions are on display at the Tetley, The Yorkshire Post, 1 March 2019).
