Unfortunately, It Was Paradise positions place-making as a radical, collaborative yet unstable process measured against experiences of exile, social upheaval, and political rupture.
The films of ALi Cherry, Jumana Mannam, Farah Saleh Larissa Sansour trace elusive narratives of home and belonging grounded in broad questions of freedom and bondage, stasis and movement, and unease and catharsis. Conceived in response to shared experiences of physical distancing, the exhibition maps itself onto the dynamic and shifting nature of place as a landscape impacted by circumstance.
