Lebanese artist Walid Saedk is the first artist in residence at the Centre for Art International Research (CAIR) at Liverpool John Moores University. This exhibition comprises work produced during the six month residency,and features an installation using sound and moving images. Within the context of an increasingly globalised culture,the artist explores the complexity of translating one’s art practice to a different,specifically local situation,and asks if the position of the artist in such circumstances can ever be more than that of the inevitable tourist.
