About the event
I'd search forever, I want to remember is a multidisciplinary body of work that asks if matter and place remember the way our bodies do.
Join us for a day in which Tamara Al-Mashouk and collaborators take over a disused Citadel exhibiting a wave machine + sound score, a three-channel film and a photographic series.
Set in a fortress built in the 1700s on the cliffs of Dover, the day-long programme features a dance performance, workshops and food. The day culminates with an audience-participatory performance that makes space for collective remembering.
The work presented is the result of a gathering of artists thinking and organising together. Manon Schwich, Sami El-Enany, Parker Heyl, Angus Frost, Lorella Bianco and Fadi Giha join Al-Mashouk in considering sites of solace within embodied experiences of hyper-politicisation.
I’d search forever, I want to remember is the culmination of a body of work that began in 2018 with a 10.5 hour durational performance by Al-Mashouk called Can you die if you don’t exist? where she read the names of 34,361 refugees who died on their way to Europe off The List (published by The Guardian, 2018). The performance was for Deeplab and commissioned by Mediale.
I’d search forever, I want to remember is in commissioned by Counterpoints Arts and Arts Council England and co-commissioned by Shubbak Festival.
In partnership with: Dover Arts Development, The Citadel, Refugee Week, Samphire, Future Foundry and SENSE.
