Hajra Waheed @Sharjah Biennial 15
February 18, 2023
Discover Hajra Waheed‘s multichannel sound installation Hum II being presented at the the 15th Sharjah Biennial: Thinking Historically in the Present.
Housed within a uniquely built conical sound chamber and composed entirely of voice, Hum II explores humming and other vocal practices as a means to consider radical forms of collective and sonic agency. The work amplifies seven songs that have been central to popular uprisings, mass social movements and anti-colonial struggles across the Americas, Africa and Asia, where women have been at the forefront.
Hajra Waheed was recipient of this year’s Sharjah Biennial Prize for her work Hum II which is on view until June 11, 2023.
