Jumana Emil Abboud uses drawing, video, performance, objects and text to navigate themes of memory, loss and resilience. Her interests lie in oral histories, the investigation of personal and collective stories and mythologies, particularly, folk tales and their sites of being and unbeing. Her work has often reflected a Palestinian cultural landscape, in which the struggle for continuity amid the wider political context necessitates a constant process of metamorphosis and ingenuity.
