Youkali revolves around the intersecting paths of two protagonists who come from different generations and backgrounds. Kenny, a 31-year- old musician from Sri Lanka, seeks to advance his career in Berlin and rents a room in 80-year- old Rola’s house on the outskirts of the city. Conflicting circumstances develop throughout the course of the film, bringing these two people together as they ultimately bridge the gap between cultural and generational differences. The plot unfolds in the setting of everyday life, and underscores the value of cultural exchange through this tale of two unlikely friends coexisting in a shared living space.

John Frederick Lewis is considered one of the most important British Orientalist artists of the Victorian era. Pera Museum exhibited several of Lewis’ paintings as part of the Lure of the East exhibition in 2008 organized in collaboration with Tate Britain.

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’.

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
