Stringed body

In this work I use cello string on my body. I use my body as an instrument, but my body’s resonance is different. It directly communicates with the body that witnesses time and place, all through the vibration of sound, which over time has been absorbed.I cannot distance myself from political reality, and all the work is a manifestation of the social and political environment. this work was part of the Abandoned Space Project, a collaborative project between the Sonorities Festival in Belfast and the Space21 Festival in Kurdistan. The performance took place in (Amna Suraka) the Red Security Building in Sulaymaniyah city, Northern Iraq. it was a political prison constructed by Saddam Hussein for dissenters of his regime.
