In 2004, Saâdane Afif started with his Lyrics protocol, where he let people from his environment write songs about his works of art. On the occasion of the exhibition The Dream of the Library in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Siegen, Germany, the artist had ten texts written in relation to his work Pirate´s Who´s Who. These lyrics, which enrich the work of Saâdane Afif with another’s imagination, in turn became a medium for Afif´s work. This resulted in a series of shows that the artist directed and had performed by different singers or actors.
For Beaufort 21 Afif is creating a new work in the form of a concert. Ten texts from his series Pirate´s Who´s Who will be interpreted by musicians or musical groups of his choice. The concerts will be preceded by a poster campaign with which the artist will communicate his performances. A vinyl record will be co-produced on the Lyrics Record label.
More information about the playing dates and locations soon.
