Writer, sound artist and educator Belinda Zhawi stages a new performance in response to Kudzanai-Violet Hwami’s exhibition at Gasworks, (15,952km) via Trans-Sahara Hwy N1. Zhawi combines poetry and sound to explore the emotional landscape of youth migration whilst interrogating what it means to forge identities based on geographies.
