ZouZou Group: door open
Ikon Gallery, 1 Oozells Square, Brindleyplace, Birmingham, B1 2HS
This new video installation, – door open – (2014-2019), is by ZouZou Group, comprising two anonymous artists, one Syrian from Damascus, the other British, living in England.
The work comes from their ongoing dialogue, made possible (and frequently impossible) through online messaging and filesharing mobile phone video footage.
The work exposes the constraints and imbalances of working together across the boundary of a war zone.
Three screens speak to and across each other, exploring, interpreting and finally overcoming the many impediments to making the work.
