Description

Silent Echoes is a new video installation and live performance by Dutch artist Dorine van Meel. Silent Echoes presents the viewer with a dystopian vision of a future, implying an unfolding ecological catastrophe. Projected on the gallery walls, images of industrial tools and corporate objects appear in distorted shapes, as silent echoes of a past, in which the course of history has not been reversed.

On 29 June at the South London Gallery, the video is accompanied by a soundtrack, produced and performed live by composer Sami El-Enany and recorded spoken word performances by artists, writers and activists Khairani Barokka and Dr. Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio, as well as a live reading by van Meel. Their powerful stories and poems speak of resistance, endurance and cohabitation, and offer a hopeful view for our world in the face of apocalyptic themes relating to the climate crisis and uncertain futures.
