Review: The Incomplete Thombu: A compelling interlace of architecture, drawing, memory and art

2 December 2011
“Put simply, The Incomplete Thombu by Sri Lankan Tamil artist T. Shanaathanan is, for us, one of 2011′s most compelling publications. It is art, but in the form of a book that deftly entwines it with architecture, drawing, the memory of loss and an eerily compelling exploration of what makes a home, a home by those who have left it behind, or lost it to the war.” writes Sanjana Hattotuwa, TED Fellow and founder of Groundviews Sri Lanka’s first and international award-winning citizens journalism website.
