Here Us Out
What drives you as an artist? Is it the beautiful? The mysterious? Driven by this question, Hakeem Adam tries to look for the meaning of expression. Although he feels betrayed by it, as it can desert you in times of need, he is also constantly energised by the search for it.
Here Us Out is a meditative exercise on reconciliatory thought. The audience is invited to listen in on a conversation attempting to form an opinion on the power and purpose contained in creative expression. It emerges from sound and video recordings of artists from Africa and its diaspora discussing aspects of their creative expression in their own voices. The installation constructs and holds space for the intentions, beliefs, vulnerabilities, habits, memories and emotions that drive and propel expression to be heard. The sounds establish a framework for exploring a central theme on creative drive.
The installation is visually supported by collaged images referencing the dynamic of the conversation as organic forms and giving faces to the voices in conversation.
