► a'21: Breaking News_WAF & Deena Abdelwahed
An audiovisual collaboration and video performance work.
:: ABOUT THIS EVENT (EN/FR/AR) ::
Let’s think of this work as an object.
An object without any (injunction)
An object as a (proposition)
Proposition et non pas une injonction.
Des choses sans sens (avec une part d’insignifiant).
Proposer la chose et laisser libre cours à l’interprétation du sens de la chose.
Un drôle de truc en tension entre l’insignifiant et donner un sens.
Une invitation au voyage. Un détour oisif pour se re-trouver.
This work is a « flânerie/déambulation » dans les passages entre temps réel and réalité du temps.
As this work is under the influence of hazardous shadows on the measures of our dialogue with each other and with the self, it may still under construction even when you will encounter its first representation as an audio/video combination, that will be diffused online on a suitable date.
This work is for any person that knows already about what we want to say, and have to say, rather than just wanting a proof to believe in many things said and said, over and over since ages but NO ONE seems to care.
May-be, a glimpse of the vision of an idea about the automatisation of humanity through social media. A collaboration between Wafa Ben Romdhane aka WAF, and Deena Abdelwahed.
:: BIO ::
Queer Visual Artist, actually based in Tunisia after 10 years of living in Europe. Through the experience of exile, WAF built the skills of Video Jockey as a main passion and the experience of working with various artists and collectives. WAF’s visions & works are politically questioning old/new social norms/medias.
Based in Toulouse, Tunisian Deena has made a name for herself as a singular electronic music producer and DJ. With her signature blend of bass music, techno, and vocals, her debut album Khonnar was named one of The Quietus' top records of 2018. Deena and French label InFiné followed up in 2020 with the Dhakar EP, praised by Resident Advisor for its “mesmerising club constructions” with details that “emphasize Abdelwahed's unwavering viewpoint, inextricable from the traditions – local or otherwise – she channels.”
