MUST in art exhibition

The Malawi University of Science and Technology (MUST) through the Bingu School of Culture and Heritage (BISCH) is this coming Tuesday, February 18, 2020, hosting an art exhibition by Guy Fleisher and Noam Friedman.
The audio visual exhibition, dubbed “Our Malawi, No Words Needed”, chronicles the experiences of Fleisher and Friedman’s tour of Malawi between February and April 2019 during which the pair used public transport to visit different areas to interact with Malawians in their natural settings..
“This project is a recollection of these travels, encapsulating in it our own unique perspective of the country through our own eyes and experiences, as a multi-disciplinary exhibition crossing the borderlines between photography and sound-art, coalesced at a new point convergence: between interaction with the exhibition space and the relation to site specific work as a medium for new practice,” reads a statement from the artists.
They say that exhibition combines analogue and digital, where they recorded environmental soundscapes where they settled for each of their trip legs.
“The photographs are of people in these stops, functioning as heart-felt memoirs of interesting lives,” they add.
“As you walk through the exhibition, you are reliving our journey in Malawi, our experiences and adventures, through a reciprocal interaction of viewers and photographs, various soundscapes and the space itself.”
This will be the first time that MUST will be hosting an art exhibition.
Fleisher is an Israeli sound artist and music technologist while Friedman is a documentary photographer.
The two are on a tour to exhibit the “Our Malawi, No Words Needed” across the globe. Their first exhibition was scheduled for Tel Aviv, Israel.
