Dana Qaddah - Aswaat a​’​ama (general sounds)

from Sonic Memories by mediaartscommittee



This audio work draws from a personal archive of recordings in an attempt to recreate experience of calmness and calamity in Beirut’s soundscape.


from Sonic Memories, released April 6, 2021
Dana Qaddah (b. 1996, Beirut, Lebanon) is a third generation expatriate, artist and organizer based on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam nations. Qaddah’s interdisciplinary practice draws upon the condition of generational displacement, being abstracted from the destruction of one’s own sense of self, place, and home.
Qaddah completed a BFA at ECUAD in 2019. In 2018, they participated in Plug In ICA’s Summer Institute II: BUSH gallery. The following year, they were invited to participate in Access Gallery’s PLOT space as a writer-in-residence. In 2020, Qaddah curated a program hosted by Western Front as part of Recollective: Vancouver Independent Archives Week. Recent presentations of Qaddah’s work includes the group exhibition The Neighbour’s Plate at Unit 17 (Vancouver) and the solo exhibition of Vessel(s) through which at Libby Leshgold Gallery (Vancouver).
