Rabab Ghazoul

Whilst Rabab Ghazoul’s work manifests across a variety of media to include video, installation and site-based work, the use of text forms a common thread through her practice. Drawn to exploring themes of dislocation and fracture – within context of identity, notions of belonging, or sites of political and social agency - her work addresses spaces and surfaces upon and through which text/s are inscribed and constructed.

“Moreover, although in principle production produces means of life, capitalist production produces not principally means of life but further means of production: production serves the avoidance of death rather than life itself; nothing can die, everything must be capitalized and expanded.”
Deleuze and Guattari's Anti-Oedipus: Introduction to Schizoanalysis, Eugene W. Holland

“One’s body leaves home for the mountain of death”
