Description

The exhibition presents a multi-channel sound installation developed by London-based visual artist and educator Tahera Aziz, taking the notion of the daily routine of waiting at the bus stop as its starting point.

Visitors are encouraged to place themselves in the position of 'witness' and generate their own mental images of events as they experience the installation – a sonic reconstruction which provides a mechanism for them to engage with the complex and multi-layered narratives associated with the case.

The installation explores the disruption of the everyday to bring the murder to the foreground, highlighting detailed elements that have particular resonance. The work is part of the process involved in struggling to preserve the memory of the Stephen Lawrence case - which has had a deep impact in public life and remains relevant 22 years on - whilst offering new insights.

Aziz has used transcripts from the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry report to build up a picture of what happened on the evening of his death. She has worked with a group of actors to develop the dialogue, and a field-recording artist and sound engineer to experiment with simultaneous multi-channel recording and audio compositional techniques.
