Ruba Salameh: “OUT OF PLACE” at Al-Ma’mal Foundation

2nd March -1st April 2011

Shattering the boundaries of collective thought as a necessary process to the journey of the soul into self-consciousness, Out of Place presents selected paintings created in the past few years in which I dealt with questions of identity, the need for identity in society, and the connection between the individual and the collective.

Out of Place is originally the title of Edward Said’s autobiography; the exhibition is a tribute of his work and memory. – Ruba Salameh

Mona Hatoum at Whitechapel

This 1996 installation by Mona Hatoum is now showing at Whitechapel Gallery in London, through 6 March.

The third in a series of four displays from the D. Daskalopoulos Collection, Greece, Current Disturbance (1996) fills the gallery with the sound of electric current feeding flashing lightbulbs in a vast grid of metal cages. As the bulbs light up and fade out at irregular intervals, they illuminate the surrounding room and the mass of wiring covering the floor. [e-flux]

NEVER PART

The exhibition ‘Never Part’ at Al-Ma’mal Foundation “brings together objects and works from which their authors, Palestinian artists from the four corners of the world, have never been able to separate themselves.

Jawad al Malhi, Palestine c/o Venice Artist Spotlight

For the next several posts, we will be running profiles of past projects by artists featured in the Palestine c/o Venice Pavilion. – ed.

Jawad al Malhi’s contribution to the 2009 Palestine c/o Venice Pavilion is hard to miss: a panoramic photograph, House #197, printed at monumental scale (pictured above). The image depicts the Shufhat Refugee camp in Jerusalem as seen from the neighbouring Israeli settlement. The image seems flattened as if taken with a telephoto lens; focal length emphasizes the distance between observer and observed.
