The Song of Djamila Boupacha
The Song of Djamila Boupacha
Installation
2008

The Song is a research-based installation realized at the Santa Fe Art Institute, NM, in 2008. It was inspired by the piece for solo soprano, Djamila Boupacha (1962), composed by Luigi Nono (1924-1990), an avant-garde Italian composer, from the Canti di Vita e d'amore, text by Spanish poet, Jesús López Pacheco. The song is available here and here. My installation includes a one-channel video installation, handmade text-based posters and signs, photocopies as well as found books and objects. The installation was exhibited as part of the SFAI Open Studios in September 2008.
