In LAND OF GODS & SHADOWS, Rahman Roslan presents a monologue of a continuing visual thesis that explores presence and interaction. It is an effort to understand the body and the soul of a scene – through glimpses, using multiple exposures in multiple frames. The 12 images exhibited were shot during frequent visits to Bali in 2010.
“ As a frequent stranger to this land, Bali offers many surprises. On my second visit, I was able, due to familiarity, to capture images, people met, and landscapes touched, and the feeling of the breeze. What I see has more meaning now and grows from the image, because from the visual I explore the multiple layers beneath. Sometimes a beautiful marriage occurs between the ancient and contemporary, or the obvious and the subtle. These relationships, shadows, and realisation brought the mesmerising energy for this series. “ Rahman Roslan
