I am / Dissonance
Between the Seas Festival / Mersiha Mesihovic / Circuit Debris
Mersiha Mesihovic/Circuit Debris brings its two latest pieces I am and Dissonance at Between the Seas. With strength and emotional complexity played out to gritty, percussive yet ambiguous sounds created by Paul Matthis in collaboration with Mesihovic I am brings us face to face with the surreal and raw nature of our existence where we can only but once again be astonished with the Inconceivability of our reality. Dissonance explores a perverse position: that the sense of despair Mesihovic associates with her native Bosnia and Herzegovina is fertile ground for the extreme joy expressed in the region’s art. The work express the relationship between despair and joy and the contradictions of being human. It is loaded with sad, amusing and shocking events that challenge our values and questions our perception of what is normal.
