For our 2022 residency we invited artist Wissam Sader.

Wissam Sader is a Lebanese self-taught multidisciplinary artist working on sonic installations and sound performances. In recent years, his work primarily focuses on the complexity of contemporary urban environments and their rapidly changing soundscapes. Through electroacoustic, minimal compositions he explores the aesthetic and social characteristics of acoustically disparate topographies. With a combination of composed pieces, field recordings and found sounds, his compositions aspire to harmonize and intersect the sounds of human and non-human actors in an attempt to reflect our evolving realities and understanding of the world.

His work has been presented in venues such as acud macht neu, arkaoda Berlin, Sophiensæle, Silent Green Kulturquartier, spektrum, KW Institute of Contemporary Art and internationally, at Teatre de fusta, and at the Museu de Sant Boi de Llobregat in Barcelona. Selected residencies include: Can Serrat – International Art Residency in El Bruc, Spain (2021), EMS Elektronmusikstudion in Stockholm, Sweden (2020), Kunstverein Röderhof e.V. in Huy, Germany (2019) and Budějovickém Majálesu in Czech Republic (2018). Sader currently lives and works in Berlin.



The residency is realized with the kind support of the Peripheral Unit of Chania.
