Curator: Shelley Harten
Exhibitor: Ilit Azoulay
How sovereign can art be? Ilit Azoulay casts off the restrictions of national and male representations and opens pathways into an interconnected Middle East. The Queendom, reigned by art, seems to have risen out of a total system crash. It is a rhizomatic realm, where stories coalesce. Panoramic Photomontages – based on the archive of art historian David Storm Rice (1913–1962) – presents a symphony of fracture and healing, while an audio work fills the venue with sounds of a universal language. Azoulay uses digital craftwork to visualise the afterlife of images and their transformations, accentuating histories of appropriation and missing links in their geographies of knowledge.
