The artist Inas Halabi presents her solo show "After the Last Sky" at de Appel. The works in the exhibition focus on regions mired in colonial violence, attempting to reveal, through looking closely, how the land and soundscape around us are an expression of dominant political power and the struggle and resilience of the communities subjected to it. The title of the exhibition is in reference to Edward Said’s book After the Last Sky (1986) which is borrowed from the line “Where should we go after the last frontiers? Where should the birds fly after the last sky?” by Mahmoud Darwish from his poem The Earth is Closing On Us (1984). Opening: Friday March 31 from 6-9 pm. On show till the 4th of June, 2023.
