Maeve Brennan @ Chisenhale Gallery

31 March 2017 - 4 June 2017

An exhibition and the premiere of a major new lm commission by London and Beirut-based artist Maeve Brennan. The work is produced by and commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery, London; Spike Island, Bristol; The Whitworth, The University of Manchester; and Lismore Castle Arts, Lismore.
In this exhibition Brennan traces the shifting economies of objects in contemporary Lebanon. The work moves between the activities of a self-taught archaeological conservator at the American University in Beirut and a mechanic and joyrider from Britel, a town in the Beqaa valley close to the border with Syria known for trading automobile parts and historic artefacts. Weaving together self-shot material gathered through eldwork with staged scenes, the work cites converging communities, histories and narratives.
