AND NOW IT IS NIGHT
Night has a sense of staging: As thoughts spill into the pillow, memories, fantasies or doubts submerge our thinking. People come in proximity or distance themselves in their dens. A process of transformation and change is at play. And Now It Is Night explores queer memory, loss and desire. Movement, text and sound are overlaid and fragmented. Revealing a nonlinear story, set in an architectural installation that is reminiscent of the old city of Damascus at night.
During his residency at K3, Enad Marouf researches memory, its temporality and how memories are embodied through poetry, gesture and image. He aims to develop a practice of fragmentation, with concentration on queer Narratives and histories from the Middle East. Shifting questions of straightforward identity politics towards a process of embodiment.

Marouf’s work occupies itself with queer intimacy, loss and memory. By understanding queer gestures and speech not only as behaviour, but as action, his work revolves around body and text. During his residency at K3 (season 22/23), he aims to develop a practice of fragmentation, with a focus on memory, its temporality and how memories are embodied through text, gesture and image.
