As complex as a bird’s song
Sara Hamdy from Cairo is the fourth scholar of the Radio Art Residency. Hamdy graduated in fine in arts at the Helwan University in Cairo. Her poetic artistic practice includes visuals and sound as well as text and performance. What leads her works is the hidden and concealed – this what we cannot see nor hear, but only sense:
Obviously I’m fascinated by what we call ›madness‹. In Arabic ›mad‹ means the hidden, in the sense of concealement. There is something of whose existence we know but we don’t see it, like the unspoken history of memory, like the gardens behind the walls or the woods with their hidden seeds in the earth.
For the opening of her residency in Halle (Saale), the artist performs her work The Complex Songs, on the 21st of September as part of the Radio CORAX anniversay celebrations.
