Join FACT for an evening of music and conversation centred around Belinda Kazeem-Kaminski’s Liverpool Biennial commission.
This event is inspired by the soundscape that Belinda Kazeem-Kaminski and Bassano Bonelli Bassano created in collaboration with participants from Liverpool who all work with their breath. The group includes actors, singers, teachers, activists, and therapists, amongst others.
The soundscape in the gallery is a 16-minute-long piece titled Keep On Keepin’ On (2022), which references Curtis Mayfield’s 1979 song ‘Keep on Keeping On’. Presented alongside two video works, the installation references the precarity of Black breathing and proposes breath as a means of individual and collective liberation.
For this event, Belinda invites some of the film’s participants to choose their own songs, bringing them to the audience for a collective listening session, as well as a conversation about the work and their involvement. This event is moderated by award winning composer, vocal coach and singer/songwriter, Jennifer John.
