Asha Athman & others @ Centre for Contemporary Art

8 April 2023 - 3 June 2023

For the last chapter of Confluence: All Islands Connect Underwater brings together three artists whose work approaches historical and contemporary examinations of the sea and other bodies of water as contested cultural, political, legal and socio-economic territories.

Expanding on the notion of the برزخ (barzakh), a state of “in-between”, a liminal space, a margin, and a point of transition, artists Asha Athman, Islam Shabana, and Samra Mayanja explore specific events, situations, and mythologies tied to this realm of stasis, separation, and confluences between borders.

Unfolding through connecting knots and as clusters of islands underwater, the exhibition maps out submerged stories and fragmented worlds, reformulating the possibility for them to re-emerge as interweaved prefigurations of solidarity, belonging, memory, and practice of care.
