Commissioned by The Southbank Center, On the Lips of Time is a public sculpture displayed across twelve speakers along Queens Walk by the river. "On the Lips of Time brings together an array of sonic material as a form of fictioning, in an attempt to get close to traces of histories connected to themes of place, time, power and family. I Nakhla explores their Egyptian heritage in a sonic blend of audio from home videos, music and memories of dreams. The work also contains words from the song β€˜Al-Atlal’ (The Ruins), made famous by singer Om Kalthoum, adapted from poetry by Ibrahim Nagi." - SBC -
