Tania El Khoury presents “As Far As My Fingertips Take Me”, a conversation through a gallery wall between an audience member and a refugee. Through touch and sound, stories of border discrimination are shared. The stories can be kept or washed away
This piece is based on the true story of a Palestinian refugee who made the journey from Syria to the UK and now works as a graffiti and stencil artist, as well as a musician and spoken word artist. Though the artist will not be in attendance at this performance as he was unable to obtain a visa to the US, his voice and story will be told through the audio portion, as another artist exacts the physical elements.
