Guillaume Rouseré (b. 1977, France)

Guillaume Rouseré, a French artist residing in Qatar, was selected as part of the 2020 Qatar Museums Annual 6/5 Open Call initiative to mark the third anniversary of the blockade to realize his proposal Allow Me. Rouseré’s work translates into sculptural form an audio recording of the poignant and unforgettable speech delivered by His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani at the opening of the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York in 2017. The speech resonated with Rouseré’s interest with preserving sound and what sound looks like. The artist cast the beautifully patterned sound waves from the extinct audio sound bite in plaster and then used that form to create a natural-looking, fossil-like sculpture in limestone.
