Third Space

We are proud to present artists-in-residence Ranya Asadi, Anna Iau, Maria Kim, and Yahia Saleh, alongside local visual artists Moncef Henaien and Rasmus Raphaëlle Östebro.
The artists-in-residence were tasked with creating video artworks responding to the prompts: power and futurity. The only requirement: the use of smartphones in filming and/or editing.
We included Moncef Henaien’s “ŠUKA” and Rasmus Raphaëlle Östebro’s “Femme Desires” for the own particular explorations of power.
The exhibition title “Third Space” refers to Homi K. Bhabha’s theory on the postcolonial condition of hybridization of societies, spaces, and within people themselves. Alternatively, this term has been used to describe spaces of agency for marginalized people. While the effects of unjust power structures provide the backdrop, the use of “third space” here is a reflection on the ways in which QTBIPOC, immigrant, femme, disabled, and otherwise marginalized folks form spaces where they are not only the subjects of a conversation but the authors of it.

Roxy Farhat: Still interested in this image?

In this solo exhibition, Roxy Farhat invites the viewer to an intuitive and absurd translation of this commercial imagery in the public space. With a number of new works and an interactive installation, Farhat builds a world of artificial images, laughters, and mirrors. At once pleasant and grotesque, Still interested in this image? features creamy neons and eerie repetition.
