ABOUT THE PROJECT
A sound installation by Baaraan Ijlal
At India Art Fair 2019
Change Room is a continuously growing sound installation of voices of people sharing their stories. It is about speaking out, and becoming a witness through the act of listening. People record their voices, with the artist as witness.
Once inside the Change Room, everyone is a listener, a witness. It’s a door to, often unacknowledged, stories we live inside our houses, neighbourhood, workspaces, gatherings and while on the move. The speaker has already left their voice, and their questions. What do we do about these stories?
Navigate. Find your voice. Listen. Witness.
