As in the fairytale of Hansel and Gretel, the path for the return home is marked. In a figurative sense, the performance recorded on video takes up the theme of the right for Palestinians to return to their hereditary homeland…
The “sainthood” focuses on women saints as a myth, a model, a legend. Whether they are Saint Lucy, Saint Agatha or the Virgin Mary, or women flesh and blood – they exist with a faith system with schematic and closed representation patterns…
Jumana Emil Abboud investigates the issues of loss and resilience via painting, video, performance and language. At the Biennial she is presenting three immense projections.
