LAB Commission / World Premiere

At those terrifying frontiers where the existence and disappearance of people fade into each other (part 2) brings together a site-specific video and sound installation by Palestinian American artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme and a new performance by Tashweesh with musician/performer Muqata’a. The combination of their different practices, in a joint performance using sound, music, and images, results in an exploration of the collision between returns, erasure, and disruption.

From the returns of the land and stubborn vegetation that does not die, to artifacts that are reactivated as living matter, figures that return in virtual form, and disruptive bodies that keep reappearing on borders, both the installation and performance address the intentional erosion of bodies, land, and structures in different forms, and also their reappearance in spaces where they “should not be.” These projects invite us to consider the forms of entanglement between the destruction of bodies and the erasure of images, and the conditions under which these same bodies and images might reappear.​​​​​​​
