‘The Jump’, an exploration of the psychological terrain of jumping into the void

The author of the exhibition, the Palestinian Shuruq Harb, seeks to tell stories through fragmentation.

A new way of telling stories, through fragmentation, because this is part of us, of our era, by the way we virtually surf the Internet, quickly and with little attention. This is the philosophy of the work of the Palestinian Shuruq Harb The Jump that we find at the Fundació Antoni Tàpies until the last weekend of March and that could be summarised, in the words of the Fundació, as an "exploration of the psychological terrain of the void."

The artist, born in 1980 and author of various projects exhibited around the world, as well as the film The White Elephant, awarded for best short film at the Cinéma du Réel festival in Paris in 2018, is interested in concepts such as acceleration, history, survival, and escapism, all of them, she manifests, related to narratives that help oneself think about the future. The Fundació also explains: "Without renouncing narrative possibilities, the artist is committed to finding new ways of narrating that amalgamate sound and image without blurring or abstracting human affairs."

The work of Shuruq Harb is a commission that is part of the video art production award of the Han Nefkens Foundation and the Fundació Antoni Tàpies of 2019, in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (Manila), the NTU Centre for Contemporary Art (Singapore), WIELS (Brussels) and Jameel Arts Centre (Dubai).
