Nahed Mansour, Archiving Voice (2010)


single channel video, 4 min. 17 sec.

Nahed Mansour performs Arabic phonemes with increasing speed, strain and tension. Archiving Voice is quite powerful, and I would love to include it in my exhibition. I think it speaks beautifully to Simon Glass’ On the Tower of Babel, and it incorporates the notion of the Shibboleth that I’m using as a point of inspiration.
