The new mode الطراز الجديد

Participated in the YAYA competition  
during the 2018 cycle.
Produced by the A.M. Qattan foundation, Ramallah.

“..A projection displays the events and life in areas A-G between the years 2050 and 2078 when the land was under The Great Siege is what you are about to see. The tour in the embroidery museum in Ramallah in the year 2170 is about to end and this is the last chapter in the tour before entering the renaissance hall celebrating the awakening of our culture and stepping into what we know as “The New Palestine”...”

The New Mode is an installation leading the viewer through the main events, changes and societal habits that developed through the timeline mentioned above, utilizing an exaggerated speculative future to display and question ethical and anthropological issues that we encounter and carry collectively and individually. Examining the conceptual image of the body as it becomes a canvas for an alternative approach to activism, and the shift in notion from activism for public acknowledgement with thundering expressions to private individual acts of resistance that are intentionally made to be unnoticed. These changes function as a reflection of our current ideas of international exposure, revolution and the body as a mean of existing living resistance. Inspired from museum aesthetics, nature documentaries and TV reports narrations, the New Mode is presenting a report about a future that might not happen, of a reality that unfortunately might be real.
