Muhannad Shono: The Caliph Seeks Asylum
29 Oktober 2019 00:00 - 19 Januar 2020 00:00
The installation made of about 3,500 PVC pipes erect on a makeshift camp site and is intended to appear “outside the context of time and place”. This installation is part of Muhannad Shono’s remapping, reforming and reshaping of a revisionist history of the Arab psyche. Muhannad Shono is revisiting the historical record as it was taught to him in the classroom and its impact on his and the collective Arab psyche – he rejects the idea that glory comes from power and victory on the battlefield - and suspends that lesson in time. The artist instead embarks on a remapping and reimagining of an unwritten historical timeline.
