    Artist T. Shanaathanan's work stands to evade this blockage with projects dedicated to the persecution and displacement of the Tamil people of Northern Sri Lanka. Shanaathanan's practise is broadly akin to that of a social anthropologist and activist, but channelled through heavily evocative draughtsmanship, installation art and as a senior lecturer of History of Art at the University of Jaffna. Shanaathanan returns to an imaginary notion of the elemental grounding of 'home', following its theft from this part of the country during the civil war.
