Ala' Younis
video art and installations

The inherited Palestinian narrative is reinterpreted in Ala’ Younis work. She obsessively recollects historical and political failures of the Arab World, and attempts to look into the conditions where these failures become personal ones. Intimate and shared memories are interrogated and the very personal associations and meanings that we continually construct around and attach to objects are explored.
