Silent Echoes presents the viewer with a dystopian vision of a future, implying an unfolding ecological catastrophe. The present-day is represented by abstract, disfigured shapes, with urgent environmental concerns symbolised by extraction and feelings of exhaustion.

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 a number spoken word performances by artists and activists. 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.
