Artist Talk with Gardens Speak's Tania El Khoury


WHEN April 28, 2018
6:30-8 PM WHERE NYUAD Art Gallery WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

This talk discusses the creative process behind Gardens Speak (ASI-FAMA Incorporated, 2016) and its relevance to the large themes within Permanent Temporariness, artistic practice that blurs the lines between performance and visual arts, politics and personal, and issues that are current and timeless.

Gardens Speak is an interactive sound installation containing the oral histories of ten ordinary people who were buried in Syrian gardens. Each narrative has been carefully constructed with the friends and family members of the deceased to retell their stories as they themselves may have recounted it. They are compiled with found audio that evidences their final moments.
