(Filmmaker, Basma Alsharif in person)
In advance of her UA VASE presentation on Thursday 3/3/16, Basma Alsharif is presenting a special program of her single-channel works at EV! Basma is an Artist/Filmmaker of Palestinian origin born in Kuwait, raised between France and the US. She developed her practice nomadically between Cairo, Beirut, Sharjah, Amman, and the Gaza Strip. Basma’s work centers on the human condition in relation to shifting geopolitical landscapes, natural environments and history. Home Away from Home presents a selection of Alsharif’s work that delves into that abyss of the idea of home. Obliterating any domestic idea of such a place, the program moves between the soporific, apathetic and psychedelic.
