Jumana Manna

Jumana Manna: A first UK solo exhibition by the Berlin and Jerusalem based artist Jumana Manna, comprising a newly commissioned feature-length film 'A Magical Substance Flows Into Me' (2015), presented alongside an installation of sculptures. Manna’s work explores the ways in which power is articulated through relationships – from expressions of masculinity in working-class East Jerusalem, to the particular bond between athlete and coach, or the diplomatic role that Norway played in the Oslo Peace Accords. With her sculptures, she investigates the historical and political resonance of materials and the physical relationships between objects and bodies, drawing from sources including archaeological artifacts, car mechanics and the cultural symbolism of Modernist architecture. Taking place 18 September–13 December, 2015 at the Chisenhale Gallery, 64 Chisenhale Road, London E3 5QZ.
