Inas Halabi’s exhibition, After the Last Sky, opened at de Appel (Amsterdam) in March 2023 as part of the second edition of Mophradat’s Consortium Commissions 2020/2022.
Following a first iteration at the Showroom in London in 2022, Inas Halabi’s exhibition After the Last Sky centers around the visible and invisible slow violence in the landscape. It invites questions about the ways in which violence is represented and perceived in the image, and whether we can trust images. The works address different regions mired in colonial violence, attempting to reveal how a landscape and soundscape reflect the dominant political power, as well as the struggle and resilience of the communities subjected to it.
