A NEW MECCA – VIDEO PROJECTIONS & PERFORMANCE

As part of Gentle/Radical‘s ongoing A New Mecca project with the Temple of Peace in Cardiff, both Beau W. Beakhouse & Sadia Pineda Hameed of LUMIN were asked to be a part of both the prior explorations of peace (which included zine making and poster printing), and an un/covering and deconstruction of the opening ceremony. For this two video graphics were produced alongside an art film exploring the act of opening, of doorways, and mis- or un- represented voices. Both artists also responded to the psychogeography and spirituality of the crypt as abstract space, and deconstructed an archival response to it. This resulted in a live performative & spoken word duologue.
