Now Is The Time To Say Nothing

Now Is The Time To Say Nothing

Battersea Arts Centre · 02 OCT - 19 OCT

‘If you are thinking about someone and they don’t know it, do you think it still matters?’


Now Is The Time To Say Nothing explores the conflict in Syria through the eyes of young Londoners in a collaboration with Syrian filmmaker, Reem Karssli.

Using stunning video and immersive sound, this video installation follows the real story of Syrian artist Reem Karssli as she captures her daily experience of the Syrian conflict on camera. When she is contacted by a group of teenagers from the UK who want to see beyond the footage they’ve watched on their TVs, they work together to co-author an experience which attempts to connect a UK audience to the human story behind the news.

Created over four years, following Reem into an exile which forces her to leave her camera behind, Now Is The Time To Say Nothing is an intimate exploration of what it means to stay connected to each other and of what happens when war and the need for survival gets in the way.

Age Recommendation: 12+
