Huna Wa Hunak
An installation of recent film works and writing
Shubbak Festival and Artsadmin co-present an installation of Umama Hamido’s recent works, including a new film made at the time of the October Revolution in Lebanon in 2019, reflecting on the feeling of being both here, and there, as well as writing developed over lockdown through her work with the Cotton Tree Trust charity.
About Umama Hamido
Umama Hamido, born in Lebanon and currently based in London, is an artist and filmmaker. Her work addresses lived and shared experiences of immigration through intersecting psychological, socio-political and judicial perspectives. From positions of marginalisation and administrative limbo, she questions our relation to traumatic spaces, how the formation of the self is affected by separation from homeland and the exile’s gaze.
Co-presented by Artsadmin and Shubbak Festival. Supported by Arts Council England.
