Invited former Delfina Foundation artists and curators in-residence present varying music and sound mixes and works related to their own interests, practice and/or current passions.

RISING UP FROM HALITE
By Chiara Cartuccia and HUNITI GOLDOX (Areej Huniti and Eliza Goldox)

The audio piece Rising up from Halite, by Chiara Cartuccia and HUNITI GOLDOX (Areej Huniti (current Delfina Foundation artist-in-residence) and Eliza Goldox), is a sonic conversation around Meditarreanean seas, which moves across different materials, mythological imaginations and landscapes. Water is here approached as a site of transformation, whereas salt is read as a medium of survival.

Listeners are invited into a soundscape that resists fixed territories and geographies, while unveiling archival crystals, ghosts and liquids that lie beneath present day surfaces.

Biographies:

HUNITI GOLDOX is an artist duo consisting of Areej Huniti and Eliza Goldox. In their practice they are interested in geopolitical realities, marginalised oral histories and contextual research. Entangled with mythological stories, their on-going thematic focus is water. When working, they try to think of formats that can involve different voices and beings, such as workshops, excursions and interventions. This stems from the desire to create moments for collective (re)imagining to collapse dominant narratives and fixed geographies.

Chiara Cartuccia is an Italian-born, London-based curator and researcher. She runs the curatorial platform EX NUNC, which is currently engaged in a long-term project about Mediterranean(s) as a frame of analysis.
