Diana Al-HalabiStill: The Disaster Cannot Be Contained كان يمكن أن لا أكون
Diana AL-HALABI (1990, Lebanon) is a Rotterdam-based artist, who studied Fine Arts at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, and took part in Ashkal Alwan’s Homework Space Program in Beirut. She pursues an interdisciplinary practice, with a focus on moving image, text, performance and painting. Al-Halabi’s artistic practice is a continuous protest against hierarchical and patriarchal systems of oppression. Her works often seek to shift grounds and scale down the oppressor through visual language. Through an intersectional feminist lens, Al Halabi’s practice departs from the personal to the political and tackles notions such as patriarchal cognitive anthropometry, institutional violence, disabling bureaucracy, settler colonialism and the visa regime.
