Omer Fast uses complex narrative structures to explore the different ways stories are constructed. Blurring the boundaries between "reality" and "representation" and between document and artifice, his practice questions the status of the image. This exhibition, co-produced with Jeu de Paume, Paris and Kunsten Museum of Modern Art, Aalborg, will present new and recent work.
The Cyphers is Hajra Waheed's largest solo exhibition to date and expands upon Still Against the Sky, a recent presentation at Kunst-Werke, Berlin. The exhibition continues Waheed's ongoing research into what has been described as 'our current aerial occupation,' highlighting the ever increasing militarisation of the sky, where the circulation of military drones and surveillance technology extends over everyday life, often with lethal consequences.
Bringing together eminent researchers and practitioners in arts, geography, history, and politics, this interdisciplinary symposium will examine themes proposed by the multilayered work of Omer Fast.
If you've been to see the current Hajra Waheed exhibition on the Ground Floor we want to hear what you thought. Please let us know about your experience of the exhibition by answering a few short survey questions.
