Borrowing from the language of political campaigning, Albert Potrony will launch a customised PA van onto the streets of Whitstable for the last three days of the Biennale.

The van will park at several locations to interact with the public. These stops will provide a ‘listening space’ to experience the various elements of this sound installation. The artwork is a composition of material gathered in dialogue with a group of male refugees and volunteer visitors, centred around Dover Immigration Removal Centre.

He Who Hopes (an English translation of the word ‘Esperanto’) juxtaposes the utopian ideals of the Esperanto language with the voices of those placed in a ‘no-man’s land.  This project is a collaboration with Kent Refugee Help and The Dover Detainee Visitor Group. Joins us for an end of the festival picnic party on Sunday 4th July from 1pm to 5pm at Tankerton beach, with food, live music, poetry readings and performances.
