A talk with artist Soraya Syed on her animation installation Hurriyah exploring the visual and literal power of words and the emotive term freedom. Soraya’s talk will be accompanied by dancer Salah El Brogy, who will respond to Hurriyah with a specially commissioned solo.
Soraya Syed is a London-based calligraphic artist, who received the prestigious icazetname from Istanbul in 2005. In her practice, she celebrates the constant tension between remaining true to her classical training while exploring further possibilities. She recently co-founded an app and web project called Nuqta. www.artofthepen.com
