At Those Terrifying Frontiers Where the Existence and Disappearance of People Fade Into Each Other

على تلك الحدود المرعبة التي يختلط فيها وجود الناس واختفائهم ببعضه البعض

Hybrid in form, this work from Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme wrestles with the problematics of representing a people displaced and disappeared. An avatar generating software and images of the people who participated in the Great March of Return demonstrations create figures that sing a sad lament. Voiced by the artists themselves yet digitally altered, they are, at once, human and non-human.
