KANNAN ARUNASALAM

Review of documentary films: “unfolding and revealing surprisingly deep poetic and compelling narratives in diverse and unexpected contexts.”

“Kannan’s work penetrates and embraces wide-ranging social, anthropological, aesthetic and political domains, unfolding and revealing surprisingly deep poetic and compelling narratives in diverse and unexpected contexts that are both instructive and emotive. It is a practice that I have come to see as constituting a form of filmic architectural portraiture, sumptuously celebrating fundamental human values whilst exposing the often complex and challenging conditions so often both overwritten and overlooked in much contemporary cultural production. Quietly and powerfully, the work offers us speculative answers to perpetually unravelling questions about our often contorted and fractured, but curiously exquisite, human condition.”— Professor Mark Raymond, Director, Graduate School of Architecture, University of Johannesburg, 22 June 2022
