Reetu Sattar – Lost Tune residency

Super Slow Way brought Reetu Satar’s film Harano Sur (Lost Tune) to The Pavilion, Thompson Park in Burnley in June 2019 as part of the Liverpool Biennial Touring programme.

Lost Tune focuses on the harmonium, as a way to explore the violence and social upheaval that have recently affected Bangladesh and as a wider metaphor for issues of cultural control, diasporas and partition. The film documents a performance that took place earlier in the year at Dhaka Art Summit and brought together many performers, each playing three of the seven notes of the harmonium.

The Biennial touring exhibition programme brought works by leading international artists commissioned and presented at the 2018 festival to spaces across the North of England in 2019. For East Lancashire Super Slow Way worked with In-Situ and showed artwork and work with communities in Nelson Library, Nelson and The Pavilion at Thompson Park.
