Gaynor O’Flynn is returning to Nepal for “Kathmandu” – a collateral event in Durbar Square on March 22 (6 PM – 9 PM) for Kathmandu Triennale 2017.
There will be a microphone in the square, the main square of the city, and Gaynor is inviting the people of Kathmandu to take part in the interactive public artwork by saying their name into the microphone and pledging to respect and preserve the ancient culture, buildings, and artisan skills of the Kathmandu Valley.
The sound of their voices will then be turned into light and projected onto the square. This builds on a previous work, ‘Kora’ with the nuns of Nagi Gompa on Boudhanath Stupa a UNESCO world heritage site.
The installation, “Kathmandu” will then move to a gallery on the top floor of Nanglo Cafe and Pub, Kamaladi, with an exhibition of sound art and limited edition prints as a collateral event for Kathmandu Triennial.
Exhibition at Nanglo Cafe and Pub, Kamaladi
Exhibition runs from March 24 to April 9
Open For All : Daily 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM
