Event description

Description

Find and Seek is a new sound piece by Palestinian artist Shayma Nader, developed during her residency in Quarantine’s Tenancy house this Spring.

Find and Seek is an investigation of the musicality of the Quran, recorded in Manchester & Salford mosques and across the two cities. It explores what a different soundscape of the cities could be if it was amplified. Following sounds that are ubiquitous but hidden within the walls of the cities, it uncovers memories through our shared acoustic musical heritage.

Join us at the house for an intimate preview presentation of the work and a discussion with Shayma about its development.

Shayma was resident in Quarantine’s Tenancy house on the border of Manchester and Salford from 24 April to 11 May 2019. Tenancy is a project, curated and produced by Quarantine, that responds to the rapid development of Manchester & Salford. Through a series of artists’ residencies and events, it explores what it’s like to live in a city negotiating rapid change.
