Opening Night: Archiving Glitches
Time & Location
About the event
Dhaqan Collective (Fozia Ismail, Ayan Cilmi & Asmaa Jama) explore, orality, ancestors, archives & identity. Our first project Camel Meat + Tapes, was a co-created project with Somali elders in Bristol looking at cassette tapes, migration, and oral histories. This was presented at Arnolfini gallery, as part of City Fellows. The second iteration of the project, funded by Arts Council England, explores the experimental sonic possibilities of cassette tapes, and the connections younger generations of Somalis have to them, and their cultures.
For our time with Bricks, we will explore the patterns that connect the sonic archives of Somali spirit possession rituals, finger weaving and music.
After the talk, experience some of our new and existing work in RELAY, some never before shown.
Friday 22 Oct, 6 – 9pm, bar from 5pm
Join Dhaqan Collective to hear about the patterns that connect Somali spirit possession, finger weaving & EDM
