Human Tides — A video programme presented online and at FNB Art Joburg | 1-4 September 2022

 Lawrie Shabibi is pleased to take part in SOUTH SOUTH FILM: Human Tides - A video programme presented online and at FNB Art Joburg. 


We will be presenting 'In The Future They Ate From The Finest Porcelain' (2015), a film by Larissa Sansour and Søren Lind.⁠ In the Future They Ate From the Finest Porcelain resides in the cross-section between sci-fi, archaeology and politics. Combining live motion and CGI, the film explores the role of myth for history, fact and national identity.  


About Human Tides

The video programme  marks SOUTH SOUTH's second collaboration with an art fair in the Global South, taking place both online and at FNB Art Joburg in Johannesburg. The programme features the work of 17 artists primarily from Africa, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and the Diaspora, and explores the scope of human and cultural influence over the course of various ecosystems, considering absence and amassing, myth-making and mythology. The video programme, following on from our collaboration with SP–ARTE in São Paulo earlier this year, will form part of FNB Art Joburg’s ORG section, which looks to redefine how people engage with organisations that were established for the good of the public. From 1-4 September 2022, it will also be available online on the SOUTH SOUTH platform for those who will not be in Johannesburg for the fair, as well as for those who would like to explore it in depth.


About Larissa Sansour

Larissa Sansour was born in 1973 in East Jerusalem, Palestine, and studied fine arts in London, New York and Copenhagen. Central to her work is the dialectics between myth and historical narrative. In her recent works, she uses science fiction to address social and political issues. Working mainly with film, Sansour also produces installations, photos and sculptures. 


Sansour’s work is shown in film festivals and museums worldwide. In 2019, she represented Denmark at the 58th Venice Biennial. In 2020, she was the shared recipient of the prestigious Jarman Award. She has shown her work at Tate Modern, MoMA, Centre Pompidou and the Istanbul Biennial. Recent solo exhibitions include Copenhagen Contemporary in Denmark, Bluecoat in Liverpool, Bildmuseet in Umeå and Dar El-Nimer in Beirut. 


Sansour currently lives and works in London, UK.
