About

WITH PERFORMANCES BY ABBAS ZAHIDI AND TADLEEH

Organised in connection with artist Imran Perretta’s solo exhibition and major new film commission the destructors at Spike Island (28 September to 8 December 2019) this evening of experimental music, audiovisual installation and spoken performances takes place in an extensive warehouse space within the Spike Island complex.

AMRA is an audiovisual collaboration between Imran Perretta and artist and musician Paul Purgas (Emptyset, We Can Elude Control). Their live performance incorporate electronic sound and analogue media, addressing South Asian identity, diasporic echoes and archival disruption.

Tadleeh is the nascent project of Indian-born, Milan-based musician Hazina Francia (formerly Petit Singe (Haunter Records/NTS Radio)). Her club-heavy, brooding debut release ‘Ego Will Collapse’ was released in summer 2019 on Berlin’s Yegorka label. It invokes states of chaos, disorder and unreason, drawing on the artist’s varied cultural heritage.

Abbas Zahedi is a London-based artist. His practice is instinctively dialogic, collaborative and socially-aware. It is from this position that he seeks to express a multiplicity of notions, whilst still maintaining a potential for taking art seriously; as a field of individuation, playfulness and otherness; an arena of research and possibilities that avoids the analytic and categorical biases, which are traditionally used to make humans and ideas ‘scientific’ and thus intelligible by markets, machines and machine-like logics.

Presented in partnership with Qu Junktions
