Fruit of Sleep
Sharjah Biennial 13 Tamawuj: Act II
Beirut, 14 October – 31 December 2017
Act II is the concluding exhibitions and performance programme of Sharjah Biennial 13. In this final chapter of the Biennial, curator Reem Fadda takes the idea of dormancy, from sleep to digestion, and looks at an embodied experience in the evolution of a language of art that beckons for more. In her exhibition Fruit of Sleep, artists delve into the imaginative, harnessing the aesthetic, not neglecting the contemplative, but also using their art to respond to the urgencies and needs of the social.
Forensic Architecture loaned our Ground Truth project as part of this exhibition.
