Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou-Rahme

And yet my mask is powerful, Part 1, 2016
5-channel video projection, 2-channel sound + subwoofer, tools, bricks, boards

Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme’s video installation confronts the apocalyptic imaginary and violence that dominates our contemporary moment, asking what happens to people / places / things / materials when a living fabric is destroyed. Young Palestinians visit the sites of their destroyed villages inside Israel as an avatar for re-thinking the site of wreckage, which emerges not just a place of ruin and trauma but appears full of an unmediated vitality, resisting colonial erasures.
