SB 13

Sharjah Biennial 13: Tamawuj | Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah

The thematic focus of SB13 is grounded in the four keywords water, crops, earth and culinary, which form the foundations of social interaction and exchange. Just as the thematic keywords are porous and feed into one another, SB13 places researchers and interlocutors in conversation with one another, and with Sharjah. Its multi-city, multi-part programmes are envisaged as infrastructures to channel knowledge transmission and information sharing between artists, curators, editors, researchers and the general public. This fluidity of knowledge irrigates new, enduring terrains of collaboration and references the threefold meaning of Tamawuj: a rising and falling in waves; a flowing, swelling, surging or fluctuation; and a wavy, undulating appearance, outline or form.

Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) is pleased to announce the list of over 60 artists participating in Act I of the forthcoming Sharjah Biennial 13, Tamawuj (SB13):

Uriel_Orlow Showroom

Mafavuke’s Trial and Other Plant Stories | The Showroom, London

The Showroom presents a major new commission by London-based artist Uriel Orlow, which explores the botanical world as a stage for politics at large through film, photography, installation and sound.

With additional works by Subtle Agency, David Goldblatt, Kapwani Kiwanga, Cedric Nunn, Cooking Sections and Philippe Zourgane.

Working from the dual vantage points of South Africa and Europe, the project considers plants as both witnesses and actors in history, and as dynamic agents – linking nature and humans, rural and cosmopolitan medicine, tradition and modernity – across different geographies, histories and systems of knowledge, with a variety of curative, spiritual and economic powers.
