Nzira Yeparuware proposes an intimate sound walk at Edinburgh Castle contemplating the mythologies of monuments and geo-objects in the formation of national identity. Visitors to the castle are invited to respond to a soundscape developed from field recordings taken at a selection of Harare’s Scottish-named sites. Through this experience, visitors are immersed in a moment of deep listening, activated by a considered set of ambulatory gestures that question how listening can form a space of embodied political encounter.
The exhibition has been part of a two-year partnership project between Historic Environment Scotland, the University of Edinburgh, and the Coalition for Racial Equality and Rights (CRER) funded by a Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) Networking Grant Managing Imperial Legacies (ed.ac.uk).
