The Hiatus
single channel video, 2 channel sound, Full HD, 9min:33sec. 2016

The installation focus on Hannah Arendt’s concept “The Hiatus” through syncing Images and historical narratives, raising the question of the Arab exodus and constant temporality, Al Hijrah “migration” and alienation in death-worlds. The last 25 years were confirmation of the initial concept of hiatus and exposing discontinuity and futility, the constant melancholic Arab journey in a no-time/no-space.
