Suspension

Amnasoraka Museum, Suleymaniyah 2018

Daf, dafchains, lightsource.

This installation was installed in a basement of a building belonging to the Amnasuraka Museum in Suleymaniyah (former war prison under Sadam Hussein). In front of its terrible history, my speechlessness materialized through the absence of sound. The Daf – kurdish Traditional frame drum with short chains attached to its inside – is seen here hanging with prolonged chains. The suspended instrument is in a unnatural state of inaction. The sounds and noises of the Daf are silenced, its movement interrupted, it´s freedom and essence negated.
