Beyond text?

Steven Feld

Virginia Ryan

Manchester University Press

Steven Feld and Virginia Ryan’s sound and visual art collaboration is a meditation on the forced movements, departures and returns of people and things as part of the slave trade and its legacy, evoked through a linked composition of the sonic materials found along the space of Ghanaian shoreline at Accra, at Pram Pram, Jamestown, Labadi, Anomabo, and Korlegonno. Their joint exhibition of sculptural paintings and ambient sound composition refigures the West African beach as a contact zone, as interacting ocean currents of natural and human-made materials referencing gold, slavery, displacements, forced motion, departure and return.
