ear-whispered: works by Tania El Khoury | Sept 6-23, 2018 | Various Locations on Campus and in Old City Philadelphia
ear-whispered, an extensive survey of artist Tania El Khoury’s work, featured her internationally acclaimed Gardens Speak. This immersive sound installation invited audience members to dig in the dirt in order to listen to oral histories collected from the early period of the Syrian uprising. Working between Lebanon and the United Kingdom, El Khoury meticulously crafts innovative performances and installations that engage the audience in multi-sensory interaction. The five works of ear-whispered also included the one-on-one performance As Far As My Fingertips Take Me, two immersive video installations—Stories of Refuge and Camp Pause—both produced as a collaboration through Beirut-based Dictaphone Group, and the world premiere of Tell Me What I Can Do, commissioned by Bryn Mawr College.
