The work ‘Sermon’ examines preaching and the notion of a wise man. Abidin interviewed Charlie the King of Mice, who lives in Berlin with four hundred mice. Charlie maps his opinions of the world in a large-scale, wall-based video projection. The background sound for the piece has been recorded during the Islamic morning prayer in Damascus. On the floor, in another reality, one hundred albino mice listen to the morning prayer and Charlie’s sermon.
