Amin Zouiten

Nadir takes place at Norra Grängesbergsgatan, a kilometer-long street just outside central Malmö. A place of sometimes conflicting cultural and political interests, which was once considered a “no-go zone” by the municipality, as well as cultural gentrification zone, can perhaps be described as an expressive and symphonic micro-city. Surrounded by several small-scale industries, established in the 1930s, there is a lingering scent from the nearby Pågen bread-factory. Here, a Baptist church gathers upstairs of an old production facility side by side with flowing neon from Arab furniture stores and carpet stores. In Nadir, the narratives surrounding the street are reformulated as “anti-narrative” through a series of sensorial sequences through and on the street.
