SCI-FI AND A BURGER
Alien abductions, geopolitics, dream readings, pop culture and a sense of distrust; it’s all part of the “The Craft,” Monira al Qadiri’s exhibition at Beirut’s Sursock Museum.
Shown in two separate environments (a pitch-black anteroom and a diner), Al Qadiri’s semi-autobiographical pieces, portrayed through sculpture, sound and video, uncover the hidden stories of her childhood in Kuwait. After leaving the diner, step into “The End,” which comprises a levitating hamburger, the symbol of consumer capitalism and the precariousness of American hegemony, accompanied by a reading from Saba George Shiber’s book, The Kuwait Urbanization. Intrigued yet?
