Shuruq Harb: The Jump

8 September


The Jump is a single-channel video that reflects on the act of leaping, both literally and figuratively, through a conversation with a blind Palestinian woman who retells her experience paragliding from the Caucasus Mountains. The result provides a critical reading of contemporary existence, via a poetic reflection on image production and how this is used in conflict zones.

The Jump won the competitive Han Nefkens Foundation – Fundació Antoni Tàpies Video Art Production Award in 2019 for Harb’s incisive filmmaking. It is being presented across the five institutions that partner to jury and host the prize: in addition to Jameel Arts Centre they are the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore; the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, Manila; WIELS, Brussels; and the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona.

It shows in Gallery 9 until 27 November.
