Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou-rahme: New Works
Disjecta, Portland, OR - Mar 2 – Apr 7
Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme use sound, image, text, installation and performance to investigate the body and the subject. They are at ease with postmodern themes such as virtuality and “perpetual crisis in an endless present.” They work with ideas of nonlinearity in the form of amnesia and déjà vu, usually sampling image, music and text to make something new. Get ready for masks, projection rooms, wires on the floor and Arabic script.
