Vibrations from the Levant
Kalliopi Tsipni-Kolaza has conceived an exhibition in the form of an album: Sonic Revolutions: Vibrations from the Levant will present the practices of sound artists exploring issues of spatial justice, collective memory and history through the detour of popular culture.
“Music or broadly sound-based acts may be geared in political movements and become both expressions and a means of political commitment.”
The “album”’s tracks take various forms of artistic expression and investigation: Track 1 consists of Stones Gods People, a performance that Joe Namy originally meant to be performed in the Garden of Forgiveness in Beirut. Track 2 is comprised of three video works by Basma Alsharif enabling experiences beyond the delineations of place, language and story. Kalliopi Tsipni-Kolaza is a Greek curator based in London and Athens.
