Discover the works of Lawrence Abu Hamdan at his latest institutional solo exhibition 𝘓𝘢𝘸𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘈𝘣𝘶 𝘏𝘢𝘮𝘥𝘢𝘯: 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘤 𝘐𝘮𝘢𝘨𝘦 at Sharjah Art Foundation.
For this show, Abu Hamdan proposes a series of works immersed in the concept of ‘atmospheric violence’, an idea that can be witnessed interruptions, silences, ‘sonification’ of images and historic sounds linked to witnesses, among others. The exhibition showcases an auditory atlas created from Hamdan’s approach to the expanded possibilities of the engagement of listening as an historic act, but also as a quotidian gesture.
The show will feature new iterations of recent multi-sensory works, including the commissioned piece titled Air Conditioning (2022), which links the ocular and the auditory regarding the 2006 July War between Israel and Lebanon.
𝘓𝘢𝘸𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘈𝘣𝘶 𝘏𝘢𝘮𝘥𝘢𝘯: 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘤 𝘐𝘮𝘢𝘨𝘦, curated by Dr Omar Kholeif, is open until July 4, 2022. Don’t miss it!
