Streets of… 7 minutes in 7 cities

Multisensory installation by Alda Terracciano including videos, surround sound, objects, smells, tastes, and plywood structures. 2012

This eight-years in the making artwork moves from the artist’s research on the everyday life of seven cities (Naples, Shanghai, Mumbai, Tangier, Lisbon, Salvador de Bahia, and London). It uncover the ancestral memories of three intersecting migration routes, the Indo-European migrations, the Silk Road and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, as they unconsciously resurface in the way people move, talk, and act in public spaces. The installation is a meditation on the act of seeing and listening and a virtual walk around the world in which the interaction between memory, human body and the urban environment are re-interpreted through people’s own personal narratives and stories against preconceived cultural stereotypes.

Streets of… 7 minutes in 7 cities officially opened during the London Olympic Games at the Greenwich Peninsula Festival in July 2012 as a site specific installation, and was then presented at Red Gallery, London (2012), Rich Mix, London (2013), The Independent Artist Fair, London (2013), Aperture Festival, Melbourne (2013), Anna Lindh Foundation Mediterranean Forum, Marseilles (2013), and Universal Forum of Cultures, Naples (2014).
