19 July 2014, 12pm
Join Martina Caruso, curator of the exhibition My Sister Who Travels, for introduction to the show followed by a discussion between the participating artists.
Independent curator Rebecca Heald will chair the round table between Jananne Al-Ani, Halida Boughriet, Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, Corinne Silva and Paola Yacoub. Together they will discuss their art practices and the real and virtual journeys they undertook to create the works that have come together in the exhibition.
Jananne Al-Ani is an Iraqi-born London based artist working with photography, film and video. Al-Ani has an ongoing interest in the representation of contested landscapes filtered through the technologies of surveillance and reconnaissance in modern warfare.
Halida Boughriet is a Franco-Algerian artist living and working in Paris. Playing on the dichotomies between reality and fiction, she works with different artistic languages influenced by the Situationists and Fluxus in her use of performance, photography and video.
Ursula Schulz-Dornburg is a German artist and photographer who lives in Düsseldorf. Her encompassing vision brings together what appear to be opposites: conceptual art and documentary photography. Schulz-Dornburg is drawn to remote areas of the world, seeking places of silence, forgotten landscapes, archaic situations.
Corinne Silva is a British artist living in London whose practice explores the use of the still and moving image to suggest metaphysical space. Her quiet, meditative visual language engages with the potentials and restrictions of lens-based media and the evolving relationship between politics, landscape and art histories.
Paola Yacoub is a contemporary Lebanese artist based in Berlin and Beirut. In 2000 Yacoub began an artistic collaboration with French artist Michel Lasserre, noting the variations of aspects of Lebanese territories in war and post-war situations through photographic and performative works. Yacoub and Lasserre exhibited at the 2001 and 2003 Venice Biennales, the Kunst-Werke Berlin 2000 and the Witte de With Rotterdam 2003 among others.
