Anthems.
2017- 2018.
Research, sound, performance, video.




Countries people have asked me if I come from:
Israel
Iran
Pakistan
Turkey
Russia
France
Iraq
Italy
Spain
Malaysia
Japan

I am learning the national anthems of each of these countries. Connected through song, I am looking to feel a kinship with the countries strangers have assigned me to.

How does nationalism unite us? And what happens when you aren't allowed to feel at home? How does this allow for migration, movement, inclusion, acceptance and integration, or the multiple complexities of an individual, when we allow a our personal sense of identity to be defined by other people based on our outward appearances?

Presentations of this project will take place over 2017.
Part one: 27/4/17 IN THE LIBRARY, Bergen, NO.

Part two: Anthems; a choir for one. FELT Galleri, Bergen. Norway. 9th September 2017.
