Yashu – Tell YOUR STORY – India week 2023

Yashu, artist from India

HyCP invites Yashaswini to share her storytelling ideas with the community of the Elbe Islands for the City of Hamburg’s India Week 2023.
She invites women from the immediate neighborhood of the Veddel Art Space to tell their stories to make the invisible visible.

Together, we want to create an inclusive community-related collaboration between Indian artists, women, and institutions in the neighborhood on the Elbe islands.

From November 1 to 23, 2023, Telling is Learning / Learning is Activism / Activism is Telling with Yashu will invite participants to make their voices heard. In various formats like workshops, co-cooking, and art conversations, a common exhibition will be developed with a unique perspective to untold narrations of understanding from women.

Yashaswini works as a filmmaker and a sound designer. She is based in Bangalore, India. Her 2019 film, ‘That Cloud Never Left,’ was supported by the People’s Archive of Rural India and premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and won the Best Experimental Film award at the Sharjah Film Program 2019. She has been a resident of the Rijksakademie van beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam, and a recipient of the Inlaks Scholarship to study sound art at the Royal College of Art, London. She is currently working on a horror film with her father.

I Invite You (2021)- I Invite You is a short film in collaboration with Arianna Zuanazzi, a neuroscience researcher who studies how the brain processes language. We were remotely paired for one week to produce a science-inspired film on the topic ‘Resistance’, for the 2021 Symbiosis competition (New York).
