The Cyphers is Hajra Waheed's largest solo exhibition to date and expands upon Still Against the Sky, a recent presentation at Kunst-Werke, Berlin. The exhibition continues Waheed's ongoing research into what has been described as 'our current aerial occupation,' highlighting the ever increasing militarisation of the sky, where the circulation of military drones and surveillance technology extends over everyday life, often with lethal consequences.
Omer Fast uses complex narrative structures to explore the different ways stories are constructed. Blurring the boundaries between "reality" and "representation" and between document and artifice, his practice questions the status of the image. This exhibition, co-produced with Jeu de Paume, Paris and Kunsten Museum of Modern Art, Aalborg, will present new and recent work.
Jumana Emil Abboud works with drawing, installation, video and performance, exploring personal and collective memory, loss, longing and belonging. Inspired by the cultural landscape of her home, Abboud draws on the traditions of Palestinian folklore and myth-making by collecting stories and fairy tales. Investigating these story telling practices and oral histories, the artist provides new interpretations for the tales she has discovered.
Athens-based Christiana Soulou makes complex drawings that investigate the nature of being human and its many conditions. The expressive lines and expansive re-imagining of forms in her work often derive from literature.
Caroline Achaintre (born Toulouse, 1969) works across a diverse range of media that includes textiles, ceramics, prints and watercolours. Her work is colourful and potent, evoking the subversive spirit of Carnival and creating an atmosphere that is simultaneously playful and absurd
Until the 1980s – and in rare cases until today – playgrounds were places for social experiments, risky projects, and spectacular sculptures. Architects, urban planners, artists, parents, and children were invited to leave their comfort zone and to venture something new. The Playground Project will bring many of these exemplary, but nowadays forgotten initiatives, pioneering acts, and adventures back with a playground in which children can run, hide and climb.
