With works by Jumana Emil Abboud, Marie-Rose Osta, Basim Magdy, Giovanni Giaretta and Anika Schwarzlose & Brian D McKenna
Curated by Nat Muller. Presented in collaboration with ReCNTR x ArteEast.
For this screening programme on Tuesday, 28 March, LI-MA teams up with ArteEast and ReCNTR. The programme revolves around the weird, dark, supernatural, and fantastical, and presents works from the ArteEast archive and network, as well as the LI-MA collection. It looks at how these — often underexplored — modes of the strange narrate complex historical, geo-political and socio-cultural realities, while opening an imaginary world of speculation and possibility. Through the enchanted otherworldliness of the spirit world, expanding universes, understated dread, and the coming to life of that what should remain petrified, these films not only mash up conceptions of time and space, but also blur the boundaries between human and nonhuman, life and nonlife.
