Hiba Alansari found a math book in a destroyed house in northern Syria in 2014. It belonged to a young girl who died during the bombardment. The Math Book is a collection of sculptural forms in cement and sponge, designed to encapsulate the moment of the explosion.

104,5° is the angle formed in a water molecule, between the two hydrogen atoms, and the oxygen atom H-O-H. The Breadth of 104.5° is the umbrella title over an ongoing series of works by the artist, dedicated to exploring the ideas and notions around the essentiality of one of the most, if not the most, important element for the existence of life as we know it.

This interactive installation, somewhere between documentary and fiction, takes as its starting point intimate tales of first sexual experiences in times of war and peace in the Middle East. The work is based on testimonies from several generations of citizens from Palestine, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, adults’ memories of their teenage years.

Blind Spot is a quest to find what scarce traces remain of Epp Kotkas, an Estonian artist who was active in the experimental dance scene of New York in the 60s and 70s. Talve combines fact and fiction to tell the story of an artist who was totally unknown in her home country. What you witness is an essayistic memory that attempts to reconstruct an unrecorded past.
