A Sight of Disjunction

The main idea of this exhibition emerges from the autobiographical work of Tamam Al-Akhal and Ismail Shammout, The Heart Paints What the Hand Perceives (2017), published by the Institute for Palestine Studies. This autobiography hides an anachronism of the concept of time, where Tamam El-Akhal reformulates the history and heritage of the departed Ismail Shammout. El-Akhal switches her position from the margin of official knowledge and Palestinian art history to the fore through her narrative, where Shammout’s story constitutes the real scenery.
