A King Made of Nothing is a work by artist Hussein Nassereddine that explores the notions of the human voice, geography, time, and age, as singers grow old, changing their mythological bodies, into human ones. Using found footage, digital images, poems written by the artist, as well as footage shot by the artist’s own mother in their native village in south Lebanon, Nassereddine collects the human voice as a personal token of intimacy and a reflection on time itself. The videos depict rare instances, where singers and their voices appear to have escaped time -even for a mere second- only to come back from this moment, with an ever more present reminder of their mortality.
