Musings of Rain

Book launch for RVBLV

curated by Hibah Mian

RVBLV; pronounced roh-blay, defined as ‘rain main’ or ‘rain bearer’ in Somali

Musings of Rain was a sound and light installation that brought out the visual metaphors of Abdullahi Ali's first published book: Yung RVB: The Sensational Heartthrob, 2021. A mixture of light, sound, writing and enhanced experiments drew visitors into a non-traditional exhibition venue to offer a multi-sensory exploration into Abdullahi’s stories. A display of the hard cover was available to view alongside an interactive element of film cameras to capture the night.
