Lawrence Abu Hamdan @Secession Vienna

In both his art and his audio investigations, Lawrence Abu Hamdan grapples with sound, speech, memory, and the quest for truth in the context of today’s legal and humanitarian crises.

Lawrence Abu Hamdan @X Museum

Centring around three key works by Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Marguerite Humeau, and Jesse Darling, the exhibition expands the spectrum of poem into language, sound, speech, ephemerality, and extinction.

Listening, which is able to reveal what extends beyond the visible layers and to perceive sounds and voices that are masked, hardly accessible or silenced. The leaking noise of suppressed gunshots and beatings, the […]

Lawrence Abu Hamdan @Kunsthalle Mainz
