Preparation for Houda Ghorbel et Wadi Mhiri
Syrine Siala visited yesterday the mosque of Hildesheim. In order to finalize their preparation before leaving to EVI LICHTUNGEN, the Tunisian artist needed more info about the site planned. It is important for them to have the exact measurement of the prayer room and the light situation during the night as well as the access mode for the room. The security for the audience is also crucial.
Syrine was accompanied by Judith Greitemann, a student of University of Hildesheim and a member of EVI LICHTUNGEN team. Once in the mosque the communication was mainly in German. As the community taking care of the mosque is Turkish it was not possible to talk in Arabic or English. The responsible in the mosque wanted to know more about the artists and their background but also about the artwork. As the artistic intervention is going to be inside a mosque we explained the artwork to insure that there is no misunderstanding.
After the visit Syrine “ the atmosphere was great and the welcoming amazing, I’m looking forward to the development and to see how the artwork will come out“
Let’s discover the result in few weeks.
