Join us in The Space and Gallery 4 for an evening reflecting on themes emerging within Hamid Zénati’s exhibition, Two Steps at a Time.

We will be hosting a film programme, Ciné-Sahra, featuring Memories of an Unborn Sun (2024) by Marcel Mrejen, Galb'Echaouf (2021) by Abdessamad el Montassir and And still, it remains (2021) by Arwa Aburawa and Turab Shah. The films featured explore colonial violence in the Sahara and the resistance rooted in this environment and will be briefly introduced by Emma Bouraba.

Ciné-Sahra is a project curated by Emma Bouraba and Abiba Coulibaly dedicated to sharing films from the breadth of the Saharan region, exploring the intermediary and often obscured space as a site of social, environmental and narrative pluralism through contemporary, archival, and artists’ film.

The screening will be followed by a devotional vocal performance with Assia Ghendir in response to the natural forms, textures and designs that inspired Zénati’s 'all-over' style.

To witness is to make contact

To be touched

And to bear

The marks of this touch
