The Packet


The Packet (established in 2019) is made up of a group of artists from Sri Lanka. With a particular focus on hyper-locality, collaborative processes and conversation, it grew out of 8 artists coming together to realize an artist publication entitled The Packet. While a core group of members continue to drive its work, The Packet functions as a collaborative platform that has embraced the work of 19 young artists in Sri Lanka to date. They work across print and digital mediums, with site-specific interventions that respond to a stratified world, exploring what it looks like ‘to do thinking in public’. Their work has been featured in the Serendipity Arts Festival (2019, 2020), the Goethe Institut’s Day-Afterthoughts project (2020), among others.
