Exhibition—In the future they ate from the finest Porcelain

Issue No. 2488

In the future they ate from the finest Porcelain Larissa Sansour’s exhibition features three short films set in the context of the urgency of Palestine’s political problems.

Rather than use a documentary style approach, she has created art works with fictional naratives to try and connect people with the current situation.

One film, Nation Estate, shows her living the highlife—literally—in a Palestine that has been relocated as a single skyscraper.

It’s a vertical solution to the state’s diminishing area of land. The exhibition will also be shown at Bluecoat in Liverpool, Wolverhampton Art Gallery and the A.M.Qattan Foundation London.

New Art Exchange,
31-41 Gregory Boulevard, Hyson Green,
Nottingham, NG7 6BE.
Until 13 March then touring.
