Lawrence Abu Hamdan @X Museum

Beneath the Surface, 2015 (Mixed media installation : 7 wooden panels, sound piece – Exhibition view, FRAC Franche Comté, 2019)

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. Understanding poem from its Greek derivative ‘poiesis’ (making) allows us to view the use of language from afar: the artworks in this exhibition explore a wide range of topics on modern voice analysis, mystical scenarios, and performative self produced by late capitalism. They recompose disjointed memories and visionary glides to evoke meanings in addition to the ostensible layer of appearances.
