We are delighted to present artist Bassam Al-Sabah’s film Fenced within the silent cold walls (2018) as part of our ongoing Screening Series. We are also very excited to be working with him on a forthcoming solo exhibition which will open during the second half of 2022.

Working across digital animation, painting, sculpture and textiles, Al-Sabah’s work explores themes of displacement, nostalgia and personal mythology as a composite of narratives in which fact and fiction, historical trauma and queer possibility intersect. This fascinating film, Fenced within the silent cold walls, interlaces these key concepts through an exploration of memory, loss and displacement as repercussions of diaspora through a digital recreation of the artist’s former home in Iraq, a site that his family cannot return to.
