Daughter Of The Sun: The End Of The Beginning

Ratiba Ayadi is a multimedia and performance artist whose work takes on forms of spiritual and physical practice, by using the body to examine the relationship between consciousness and the purpose of human existence. By these means, her body becomes a vessel with which to explore the quiddities of every-day life when balanced with the possibilities of the alternate, divine world. There is no order- only fragments- and those fragments exist somewhere in space whether that be non-sensical and in-between. Her alchemic-like-work displays as a guided, meditated, ritual-like experience. A mute visual environment host by a sonic hologram challenges the construct of experiential understanding and contemplation. A gentle introduction to the end of the beginning. Through romantic wordplay, ambient soundscapes and frequencies, she -the silent songstress- voyages along an uncertain and uncharted road.
