A Slightly Curving Place

Presenting an ambisonic soundscape for the first time in the UAE, this exhibition responds to the practice of self-taught acoustic archaeologist Umashankar Manthravadi and proposes possibilities for listening to the past and its absence which remains.

Concrete, Street 8, Al Quoz 1, Dubai, UAE

Centred around an audio play and a video installation, it brings together writers, choreographers, composers, actors, dancers, musicians, field recordists, and sound, light, and graphic designers who engage and transform not just each other’s work, but also that of many others. Elements from Umashankar’s biography serve as a compass amid the material in vitrines, as a dancing body positions the endlessness of time in relation to a series of ruptures that is history.
