Jumana Manna is a visual artist, raised in Jerusalem and living in Berlin. She will present a body of work and inspirations, from her days as a student at the National Academy of Arts, Oslo, till the present. Her films address issues of subjectivity and desire, archaeology and notions of preservation, settler-colonialism and music, while her sculptures are wilder combinations of found materials, casts and cut outs that condense her extensive research into unexpected visceral forms.
Manna has exhibited at Sculpture Center, New York, Chisenhale Gallery, London, Beirut Art Center, Liverpool Biennial, and Kunsthalle Wein. Her films has been screened at M+, Hong Kong, 54th Viennale International Film Festival, 66th Berlinale Forum, Tate Modern, and IFFR Rotterdam. This year, Jumana will be part of the Nordic Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, and is working on new commissions for the HighLine in New York, and the 10th Satellite program at Jeu de Paume in Paris.
