Mutation des territoires, modernisation, migration, dérive sont autant de sujets présentés dans leurs vidéos, installations, photographies ou sculptures.

Afbeelding 40

For over two years, SATELLITE COLLECTIVE, a non-profit arts incubator in New York City, has been playing TELEPHONE, the game in which a message is whispered (and transformed) from person to person. In this case, the message has been passed from art form to art form. The message might become a poem and then a painting and then a film. Each artist was only shown the work directly preceding his or her own, unaware of the original message or the arc of the sequence.

Akmar played the game and whispered the message : Newspaper Hat . In total over 300 artists from 159 cities in 42 countries played Telephone curated by Nathan Langstone.
