Sharlene Bamboat’s If from Every Tongue It Drips explores questions of distance and proximity, identity and otherness, through scenes from the daily interactions between two Sri Lankan women—a poet and a cameraperson. Connected through languages, personal and national histories, music and dance, and the gaze of the camera lens, they explore subjects both expansively cosmic and intimately close—from quantum superposition to the links between British colonialism and Indian nationalism.

Beatriz Santiago Muñoz’s work of radical juxtaposition draws on methods of simultaneous narration from Sanskrit poetry to explore image and sound relations and the duality of bodies, objects, and places.
