Nujoom Al Ghanem at Venice Biennale

NUJOOM AL GHANEM is the first woman to exhibit her work in a solo presentation at the National Pavilion of the UAE at the Venice Biennale. Indeed, she is only the second artist ever to be given the stage alone (after Mohammed Kazem in 2013). In Passage, her 26-minute, two-channel video, she combines poetry with the language of film to tell the fictional story of Falak, a displaced woman searching for her home, as well the real tale of making the film. The presentation, curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath, purposely blurs the line between truth, reality and story; a comment perhaps, on the modern condition. Biennale Arte 2019 closes on November 24th.
