Sentences on the banks and other activities
Exhibition project curated by Abdellah Karroum

13.11.2010 - 28.2.2011

“Sentences on the banks and other activities” is a live art exhibition, curated by Abdellah Karroum, and initiated at Darat al Funun in Amman as a hub for its operations. This project integrates production across cultural disciplines and social practices, associating Darat al Funun with social and private spaces, and other cultural spaces around the city, as well as the Khalid Shoman private collection. The project is launched with an invitation for people to join a collective space of thinking and expressing ideas on realities and imagination. The curatorial enunciation suggests the simultaneous appearance, in times and spaces, of art production, post-production, and encounters, experimenting with the appearance of art expression during the formulating process. The urgent character of this idea of simultaneous sharing while creating interrogates today’s speed, and the missing distance between real facts and history, documentary or fiction. The exhibition takes shape at Darat al funun, in connection with few places in the city. A one-day conference on “Art Practices and Vocabulary” associates curators, artists and scholars to the project. A radio program is produced in parallel.

Ayaayd also explained that the lung-like form allows him to feel the sound. The music, to him operates in a physical way; he both feels and hears the music that he is producing.
