Sound And Silence: Exhibition Talk
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
Soraya Syed in Conversation with Sussan Babaie
Artist Soraya Syed will discuss her new body of work in the exhibition Sound & Silence at The Coronet Theatre with Sussan Babaie. The talk explores the evolution of her practice and what drives her to deploy every capacity in her body and soul to inhabit, embody, and surface for the viewer the inherent complexities of the experience of writing as it navigates between sound and silence, between movement and meaning.
London-based Soraya Syed is a classically trained calligrapher and artist dedicated to bringing the ancient art of Arabic calligraphy into the 21st century through film, dance, VR, and three-dimensional sculptures. Her pioneering work has been exhibited across Europe and the Middle East and is prized by collectors worldwide.
Sussan Babaie is Professor of Islamic and Iranian Arts at The Courtauld Institute of Art.
