A New Mecca ︎
An ongoing project working with Gentle/Radical in Cardiff. The first stage involved workshops on bookmaking, zines and peacebuilding, alongside screenprinting with Sadia Pineda Hameed. The second stage involved a gala night at the 80th anniversary of The Temple of Peace. Reinterpreting the archives, I created a film juxstaposing Maya Deren’s films with the archival footage of the unheard voices of women from the buildings opening ceremony. I also wrote and performed an experimental dual spoken word performance with an installationthat deconstructed the buildings crypt below the performance space. Upcoming stages of the project to come in 2020.
A current collaborative project with Sadia Pineda Hameed based around silent, kinetic modes of communion and care.
