This new video installation by ZouZou Group, which comprises two anonymous artists – one Syrian, the other British – has been created from the artists’ dialogue online.
The installation – door open – (2014–2019) comes from the two artists ongoing dialogue through online messaging and file sharing mobile phone video footage. The work highlights the difficulties of working together across the boundary of a war zone and long-standing military dictatorship.
In the installation, three screens speak to and across each other, exploring, interpreting and finally overcoming the many impediments to making the work.
The exhibition is supported by Art Fund.
