Five Announcements

Anna Hart & Hassen Rasool

At 04.00, 13.00, 18.30, 20.45 and 22.00 an ‘adhan’, the muslim call to prayer, was broadcast live from the roof of the Granary Building. The plaintive refrain drew people’s gaze upwards. Some lowered their voices and listened. Some stopped, unsure where the sound was coming from, and then held their mobile phones up towards the source. Two noise complaints were made by a local resident.

Anna and Hassen were commissioned in 2015 as part of Unannounced Acts of Publicness with support from Argent.
