Event Description

Oct 15 - 29

Remember is a simple yet evocative video triptych that invites viewers into a meditative space. The installation explores simple gestures with the tasbeeh (Islamic prayer beads) as a way to perform, deconstruct and create ritual. The individual beads of the tasbeeh become metaphors for humans and our spiritual seeking. The first panel of the piece highlights repetition and the circle as a symbol of community. The second panel deconstructs the circle of beads and allows them to fall freely. The resulting sound echoes the uncontained nature of the clattering beads. In the third panel, the artist slowly rearranges the fallen beads to form a new horizon. This horizon is created with deliberation by her own hand and it is a place of imagination and endless possibility.
