The Forgotten Chatter

Haderza Mensia: The Forgotten Chatter

Haderza Mensia, which translates as the 'Forgotten Chatter' in the local Arab dialect, is Noon Arts second major exhibition, sponsored by the German Embassy in Tripoli, Libya and Hud Hud. It will take place from 15-24 June 2013.



This special ten-day event will bring the work of twelve artists as they contemplate today's post-Revolution Libya. It is a conversation between them that reflects on the status of the country.

The collection of powerful imagery is made up of photography, paintings, sculptures and film; and, much of it will be seen here for the very first time. Its purpose is to explore the hidden side of human nature and to show the worry and concern these artists feel for their beloved country's future.

Their particular choice of subjects, use of symbols and clever ironies throughout the exhibition convey the personal and collective frustrations, dreams and aspirations.

The real Libya for them feels as though it has been forgotten, together with its vulnerable women, frustrated youth, the innocent children and the elderly. But Art being their only weapon, they are confronting Libya's predicament and commenting on what has been ignored.

For Najla Shawket Fitouri, one of the participants: "Being an artist is an adventure that deserves struggle, just like in life."

We invite you all to come and see the work of these talented Libyan artists who are putting a strong frame on today's Libya. In doing this, they are expressing their anxieties and opening up the desired haderza (chatter) with the ultimate goal to lead into a conversation with the viewing public.

The artists taking part in Haderza Mensia are:

Direction to Doshma

DOSHMA

Direction to Doshma

Doshma is the newly built and architecturally innovative venue in Tripoli, Libya that will open its doors to the public for the very first time to host our exhibition Haderza Mensia. It is an original space purposely made by two Libyan architects (Muftah Abudajaja and Walid Turki) to exhibit art, encourage socialising and bring people together to discuss the future of creativity in Libya.

Inspired by the February 2011 Revolution, its architects wanted to focus on the power of human endeavour and let the structure be a response and reminder of how far Libya has come and how change can allow progress. The material used for the building's construction also reflects the back to basics approach; as during the Revolution, when men and women used whatever material was at hand.

Doshma's main space consists of a vaulted roof within which lies a secondary space consisting of a shipping container. Created to be the perfect metaphor to the Libyan struggle, the container was for the transportation of goods and aid that was delivered during the Revolution and its robust form also helped to block routes into the cities and towns.

The above takes centre stage within the building and the insertion celebrates or represents the social changes happening in Libya. There is also the glazed facade that invites the outside context into the structure that is free from any barriers. The overall design is to break down the idea of privacy and to signal a new liberation. Abudajaja and Turki have managed to create the architectural epitome of openness, transparency and the designation of personal as well as collective freedom.
