Bicycle

Duaa Qishta

Duaa Qishta grew up in Palestine, on the Gaza Strip, where women are raised following strict social and religious codes, centered around appearance. Sharing her dreams of emancipation and using Théodore Géricault’s paintings as a starting point – war scenes with strong, brave horsemen – the artist imagines herself as a knight on a bicycle in battle against her society (in Gaza, she was never allowed to ride a bicycle). In Paris, she bought her first bicycle, which she she left locked up for the entire duration of the lockdown.

Monsters

Omar Ibrahim

As a child, Omar Ibrahim believed that monsters belonged to an imaginary outside world. Over time, they turned into the face of war and oppression. With loneliness and exile, other monsters lurked in him: the sadness, the fear of disease and death, the uprooting and the loss of loved ones.

Virtual Reality

May Murad

May Murad is interested in the correlation between the virtual the real, notions that become difficult to dissociate during a lockdown. Placing herself in a world of computer screens, where windows open to access other spaces or to display automatically generated impersonal messages. She replaces these words with more metaphorical propositions with double meanings. This work echoes Digital Residency, another project carried out in collaboration with Scottish artist, Rachel Ashton.
