Imagine multiple voices coming together in the unintelligible murmur of a crowd. w/ Ghita Skali, Basma Alsharif, Golnesa Rezanezhad

Ghita Skali (Casablanca, Maroc, 1992) est actuellement en résidence à De Ateliers (Amsterdam, Hollande), après avoir étudié à la Villa Arson (Nice) et aux Beaux-Arts de Lyon. Ses projets se nourrissent d’anecdotes apparues dans les médias, puis occultées, qui révèlent des relations au pouvoir fondées sur des mythologies et reflètent des systèmes de croyance et d’autorité tout autant qu’elles expriment l’ironie. Il s’agit moins de distinguer la rumeur de la vérité que de cartographier les ramifications possibles et les contradictions qui l’ont fabriquée.

Basma al-Sharif, artiste et cinéaste d’origine palestinienne, travaille entre le Moyen-Orient, l’Europe et l’Amérique du Nord. Working nomadically between the Middle East, Europe, and North America, and currently based in Berlin, Basma al-Sharif—an artist and filmmaker of Palestinian heritage—explores cyclical political histories and conflicts. In films and installations that move backward and forward in history, between place and nonplace, she confronts the legacy of colonialism and the experience of displacement with satire, doubt, and hope.
As Eyal Sivan once commented: “Basma al-sharif’s work makes the claim for a generation of young Palestinian internationalist artists that the Palestinian perspective is in fact stronger than the metaphor of Palestine. This notion of a Palestinian perspective, of a gaze steeped in History and splintered by geography, means refusing to be enslaved, refusing to be merely a support for projection but instead providing a critical reflection on the nature of this projectionÀ travers des films et installations qui explorent tant le passé que le futur, elle examine des histoires et des conflits politiques qui refont surface de manière cycliques, qui existent entre le lieu et le non-lieu. À travers ces mouvements incessants, elle confronte l’héritage du colonialisme et l’expérience du déplacement avec un regard qui mêle satire, doute et espoir.

Golnesa Rezanezhad is a visual artist and researcher based in Ghent. She works with various artistic mediums like drawing, painting, photography, and textile. She works through craftwork, mainly the one practiced by women, to look into women’s choices, everyday performances, and belongings. In recent years she has conducted a research practice in northern Iran with women rug weavers. Since rug and carpet weaving in Iran has been the main export of the country for a long time, especially in the pre-oil economy,  understanding the practice and imaginations around rug weavers is a way for her to challenge the many misrepresentations about them and their craft. Golnesa has presented her research and artistic practice in various international academic and art institutes including Iran, the USA, Belgium, the UK, Austria and Portugal, among other places.
