4 Rajaa’ Street, Ramallah, Palestine
‘O Whale, Don’t Swallow Our Moon’ is a solo exhibition for artist Jumana Emil Abboud. The exhibition comprises a series of past and new works which deal conceptually and aesthetically with Palestinian folktales, creatures and sites. Her most recent work, the video installation Hide Your Water from the Sun, an ongoing research-based work made in collaboration with Issa Freij, takes as its departure an essay by Palestinian ethnographer Tawfiq Canaan from the 1920s about haunted water wells in Palestine. The series of drawings, dating back to 2005, are inspired from Palestinian folktales and creatures.
