CALL MY NAME 

Nuit Blanche Toronto at Laurier, 3 October 2019. 

Reflections by Kim Rygiel, Wilfrid Laurier University,

on Nuit Blanche art installation, Call My Name, by Zahra Saleki

Call My Name was presented as a photo-installation piece as part of the Nuit Blanche 2019 festival in Toronto. This installation was hosted by Laurier University

In this installation, the audience walked through faceless kids, which were installed on black boxes, and the lead to the globe that they could only see the middle-east and Afghanistan. Through this globe, the audience could hear lullaby from all over the world, and there were hundreds of light boxes around the globe, ready for the audience to give names and stories to these faceless kids.
