Kirtan (exhibition response): Come As You Are / Medicine for A Nightmare with Gurpreet Chana and Rajkanwal Kaur

“Your humble servant, who obtains the Medicine of the Naam, is rid of the illnesses of countless lifetimes and incarnations, so sing the Kirtan … This is the most fruitful occupation.” – Sri Guru Granth Sahib*

CO-PRESENTING PARTNER

Responding to the historical references and contemporary practices represented in Nep Sidhu’s Medicine for a Nightmare (they called, we responded) this participatory performance with musician Gurpreet Chana and Rajkanwal Kaur will take place within Sidhu’s exhibition at the Audain Gallery. Nep Sidhu will also be in attendance.

Kirtan is a means of musically transforming a community gathering into Sangat, which is a form of fellowship specific to the Sikh faith that is open to all, for all. In arriving by means of sonic resonance, one can find themselves closer to the formlessness and namelessness of being. Kirtan, as shared within Sidhu’s exhibition, is an invitation for the public to come as they are, co-creating a collective and lived musical experience.

This event is co-presented by SFU Galleries and Indian Summer Festival.

*These are the words of Waheguru as shared through guru Arjan Dev Ji, the 5th Guru of the Sikhs. This shabad is on page 107 – 108 of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and composed in the Maajh Raag.
