“Partition Inachevée” (Incomplete Partition) is a tribute to the artist’s father George Naufal Sawaya. It is inspired by his legacy of musical compositions and recordings of bird songs. The artist writes ’50-year-old tapes, annotated or blank sheets of music, oud strings meticulously kept, weave together almost a century of music. I play with ephemeral melodies that my eye can listen to.
I fly elsewhere.’
