Summer Special Not Sent Letters Set (February 13, 2010):

TELLING TRACES

Working with ideas of oral and family histories, diasporas, migrations, translations, and interpretations, AISHA JAMAL and SARAH SHAMASH are creating an installation piece with an audio floor map that uses recorded interviews with family members recounting migration stories, mixed with recorded audio from their journey to the Middle East in 2011. A performed version of one of the two trajectories to be featured in the installation, using recorded audio, projected video, and live translations from Portuguese to Turkish, Arabic, Hebrew and English, will be presented for the Not Sent Letters & Guests Summer Special. Performing translators include SEBNEM OZPETA (Turkish), DIMA AlLANSARI (Arabic), SARAH SHAMASH (English), & CARMEL AMIT (Hebrew).

 

MIND OF A SNAIL

Since 2003, JESSICA GABRIEL and CHLOE ZINER have been developing a multilayered style of visual storytelling using overhead projectors as their main light source. Their performances combine originally crafted puppets, music, masks, and eclectic experiments in lighting and timing. Their “Compost-Modern” approach explores the interconnectedness between what is considered natural, artificial, and where everything blurs in between. A new work will be presented for the Not Sent Letters & Guests Summer Special that responds to the context of the overall project.

HOJI TSUCHIYA

is a Berlin-based Japanese artist who playfully integrates painting, comics, animation and music production within his practice. His highly idiosyncratic works often explore narratives of isolation and desire in modern life with unexpected, mesmerizing results. Two of his animated shorts, The Woman In The Long Black Skirt (2010) and Sphere (2012), will be screened for the Not Sent Letters & Guests Summer Special.

For more information about Hoji’s work please visit his website.
