Exhibition of new immersive artworks heads to FACT

This March discover an exhibition of new immersive artworks that explore how music and song bring together the family and collective histories we inherit at FACT.

Let the Song Hold Us is a collection of new immersive artworks that reach between generations, and across geographic boundaries. The artists experiment with storytelling to consider how we might shape our own identities from the memories of those we have lost. Centred around song and music as a way to communicate ideas of family, hope, and belonging, the works reimagine the ways we create and share; what we inherit, and what we pass on. They represent both the daily rituals of our lives and the moments when we yearn for a deeper understanding of who we are.

Featuring works by internationally renowned artist Korakrit Arunanondchai (USA/Thailand) and new commissions by UK-based Zinzi Minott, Tessa Norton, Larissa Sansour with Søren Lind, Ebun Sodipo, and Rae-Yen Song. 

The exhibition presents a new installation of objects and drawings, animated using sound and augmented reality, by Glasgow-based artist Rae-Yen Song. Song creates a distinctive and singular visual language by reclaiming and reimagining ancestral mythologies, family rituals and inherited memories. Artist and dancer Zinzi Minott premieres the next iteration of her annual series, Fi Dem, which explores the histories of the Windrush Generation and experiences of Blackness, migration and living in the diaspora. In this new work, Minott specifically looks at Liverpool’s Windrush stories, focusing on the Caribbean community.

The exhibition also debuts a new commission by artist Tessa Norton who was awarded the Jerwood Arts x FACT Fellowship in 2020. Developed during her artist residency at FACT, Norton presents Dark Circles (2022), a new multimedia installation exploring the ambiguity of Anglo-Indian identity, which was a product of Empire, yet marginalised within it. Norton traces its contrasts and contradictions through the glamorous performances and fluid, ambiguous ethnicity of three Anglo-Indian actresses spanning the ‘Golden Age’ of musical cinema to classic Hollywood.
