Counterpoints Arts, Dover Arts Development, Shubbak Festival and Frieze No.9 Cork Street are pleased to present I’d search forever, I want to remember, a multidisciplinary body of work by artist Tamara Al-Mashouk that asks if matter and place remember the way our bodies do.
The exhibition features a wave machine that contains water from the English Channel brought in as witness, a three-channel film that explores the psyche of a disused detention centre in Dover and a photographic series that engages with the shoreline as a site of poetic multiplicity.
The work presented is the result of a gathering of artists thinking and organising together. Manon Schwich, Sami El-Enany, Parker Heyl, Angus Frost, Lorella Bianco, Fadi Giha and Patricia Doors join Al-Mashouk in considering sites of solace within embodied experiences of hyper-politicisation.
