Emily Jacir: Europa

Image-1-Lydda-Airport_retouched-website-copy-1170x655

Bringing together almost two decades of sculpture, film, drawings, large-scale installations and photography, Emily Jacir: Europa focuses on Jacir’s dialogue with Europe, Italy and the Mediterranean in particular. Her works  are preoccupied with exile, belonging, personal mythology and nostalgia.

Known for her poignant works of art that are as poetic as they are political and biographical, Emily Jacir explores various histories of migration, resistance and exchange. Books, libraries, etymology and the act of translation are also key themes in many of her works.

Major works including Jacir’s atmospheric film Lydda Airport, and ex libris, which addresses the looting, destruction and restitution of books are also featured, alongside ENTRY DENIED (a concert in Jerusalem) and stazione.
