LAST CHANCE Sawsan Al Bahar: 33 Songs, 99 Words

11 January

Free

The Dubai-based Syrian artist presents a large-scale multimedia installation with 330 printed sheets representing songs inherited from her father over the past 33 years. The songs are an obscure and highly personal collection; the patterns only reveal visual poetry and music, thereby immortalizing the ephemerality of music and paying tribute to the power of individual and collective memory. By taking a scalpel to the lyrics and words that make up these songs, Al Bahar dissects how we usually experience music and song; through phrases that linger, through moments of melody, through sequence, form and repetition. The result gives her a sense of belonging and sensibility.
