Sama Alshaibi (I)
Saturday, March 03 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
Grand Ballroom Salon H
Sama Alshaibi's photographs and videos weave the physical and psychological dispossession of the body in relationship to land, resources and identity- violated through war or occupation, and uprooted into physical and psychological exile. She uses her own biography and body in her work, positioned as an allegorical site that makes the byproducts of war and diaspora visible. Alshaibi's talk will focus on "Silsila", a 7-year project probing the human dimensions of migration, borders, and environmental demise in the Middle East and North Africa. "Silsila" debuted at the 55th Venice Biennial and is the subject of her monograph published by Aperture.
