In 2013, Marta Zgierska survived a serious car accident—Post is a project about trauma, frozen in dead greyness, silence and tension. Everyone can find their own punctures here: exhausting dreams, fears, obsessions. An individual way of discovering a twin traumatic memory in another person, Post is the artist’s attempt at “intimate contact which closes the past non-experience in the present.”
Photographer Lara Atallah investigates the role of the photographic archive in historical narratives, especially those of her hometown of Beirut. In this work, she raises questions about nostalgia and ritual by inserting a table set for Lebanese coffee and traditional ma'amoul pastries into a scene that appears to be taken from Lebanese golden age of the 1960s but is entirely constructed and collaged from several archival images. This invented landscape comments on the ideas of fabricated stories and faulty mechanisms of memory in a country that does not have an agreed upon history.
This digital photograph is characteristic of Achraf Baznani’s profoundly surreal, existential art. Here, a miniature man—perhaps the artist himself—appears walking along a tightrope, a pair of scissors and a thread about to cut or burn through the cord. An Artspace Edition, Into the Abyss was produced in multiple sizes in editions of 100, 50, and 10, respectively from the smallest size to the largest.
