Sana Jarrar: Skörden
Sven and Ellida Hjort’s grant exhibition

6.02 – 5.03 2022


The arrival of a harvest is a process requiring trust upon its ritual. It demands us to put our body in motion, following a specific wisdom. But also, to wait, to be patient, to not fall into despair.

Skörden [The Harvest], a solo exhibition by Sana Jarrar, invites us to a landscape that sheds light on what grows forth from what is left behind. This series of paintings and sculptural pieces result from a profound spatial sensibility, a meticulous arrangement of objects and materials evoking the care with which we make a place feel like home. The artist observes her surroundings and uses what is at hand, while leaving room for the unexpected.

With Skörden, Sana Jarrar embraces the inherent abundance of modest materials, letting beauty sprout like an unrestrainable force.


SAKINA Magazine are the editors of the exhibition catalog. The release date will be announced shortly.
