SOUND ART TRIENNIAL
8th, 9th, 10th February 2018 – Electrowerkz, London
(UK) ➣ Sound-Video Installation
Izzy Nakhla creates playful poetic works that run through waves of urgency, precariousness, power and language. She works across a range of media including sound, painting, sculpture and video. Her practice references the limits of inside and outside, the creaturely and the eerie, human and non-human, the body and the voice. With sonic language at the heart of her practice, her works play with imagination and expectation, with rhythm, poetry and rhyme as structures of movement and possibility. Her approach features a nod to intensity, buffoonery, tension and performance and features moments of transformation and emergence, connection and disconnection, breakdown and breakthrough.
These are artists who want to push you as a listener, viewer, toucher, taster. They feel the competing powers that define human and inhuman experience and press this open the audience. This is work that requires the presence of the artist and the engagement – sometimes submission – of the public. Your senses will thank you for the embrace that is DELIQUIUM.
