“I’ve been listening to this ground for decades, from the soldier’s steps to the tanks crossing the island. The wind and the salt are provoking the palm trees' roots, the land is constantly shifting, and my ear is staying put. Very close, laying into the dust, touching the stones. I can remember the position of every grain underneath me, their vibration and their silence.” Life Still ruins near the Imperial Palace, Massawa, Eritrea (2020).
‘LaughLand (2019)’ is an interactive installation that tries to create a memory capsule of a place that is doomed to be demolished. Situated at the shopping centre’s heart in South London, LaughLand is a people’s place, and the documentation of this unique site creates a living archive for the many stories, objects and soundscapes that assemble it.
