Meet The Packet

  • artist publication
  • art collective
  • contemporary art

Made up of a group of art workers from Sri Lanka, The Packet seeks to make work located in the playful and the intimate in response to a stratified and exclusionary world. 

The Packet began with a community of artists and friends meeting in an apartment in Colombo. What emerged was a collaboration on a deconstructed art-book, and has since evolved into a larger group practice.

Instead of “speaking at” or “speaking to”, we’ve been asking what it means to “speak from” and what it looks like to do thinking in public. We adopt a model of collective study that is encompassed by, to paraphrase Fred Moten, “what we do with other people”, with a particular focus on hyper-locality, collaborative processes and conversation.

The packet is a community of artists currently made up of Imaad Majeed, Venuri Perera, Cassie Machado, S P Pushpakanthan, Sharika Navamani, Abdul Halik Azeez and Sandev Handy.
