‘Moments of Possibilities: Air, Land and Sea’
With land distribution and urban morphology in Palestine now being pushed to their extremes through the inclusion of certain communities and the exclusion of others, the aim of this London event is to explore alternative means of re-reading ‘Air’, ‘Land’ and ‘Sea’ within the region by stripping away the dominating power of lines on the ground.
Stemming from the need for an alternative discourse that can heal and nourish real physical space as well as the space of imagination, it will look at ‘Air, Land and Sea’ in the hope of redefining a new geography beyond the currently enforced borders. Through acts such as ‘cutting’ and ‘breathing’, the London event will include works that demonstrate the possibilities of reconstructing and stitching together fragmented spaces and Palestinian diasporic communities. Within the main theme of ‘This Sea is Mine’, ‘Air, Land and Sea’ suggests a world where the invisible can be rendered again as visible, and where the subject of return is achievable.
The London event will hence consist of exhibitions, digital fabrications, talks and films screenings as mediums to explore everyday lives and new kinds of space in Palestine, the Mediterranean sea, and beyond—both virtually and physically. Series of platforms will be created to incite debates at multiple levels and viewed through different lenses with over 25 contributors, artists, architects, spatial designers and filmmakers.
