What is it?
Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) presents the first solo exhibition in the UK by Lebanese artist, theatre director, playwright and actor Rabih Mroué at Rivington Place. Influenced by the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East and the Lebanese Civil War (1975-1990), Mroué looks at issues of historical narration, exclusion and remembrance. For this exhibition he presents new installations alongside key recent works and a live performance.
A significant aspect of Mroué’s work deals with histories of conflict. Using found documents such as newspaper clippings, video footage and photographs, he aims to ‘erase’ the weight of these memories by publicly sharing them. References to specific political situations are used to clear the way for alternative futures.
