Awarded work: Pipe Dreams, 2012, video installation

In a historic phone call, the late President Hafez El Assad questions Syrian astronaut Mohammad Fares, who is flying above the Earth, about his impressions as he looks down on the Syrian lands. Twenty-five years later, at the beginning of the upheavals in Syria in 2011, the authorities, fearing vandalism, dismantled the statues of Assad in the protesting towns, sacrificing the “Symbol” in order to safeguard the “Image.” Pipe Dreams reflects on how authoritarian regimes protect representations of their power.

Artista selecionado pelo 18º Festival > Prêmio de residência Res Artis >  A-I-R Laboratory – Varsóvia, Polônia

Em um telefonema histórico, o falecido Presidente Hafez El Assad pergunta ao astronauta sírio Mohammad Fares, que está sobrevoando a Terra, sobre suas impressões ao ver o território sírio do alto. Vinte e cinco anos mais tarde, no início dos levantes na Síria em 2011, as autoridades, temendo o vandalismo, desmantelaram as estátuas de Assad nas cidades que protestavam, sacrificando o “Símbolo” para salvaguardar a “Imagem”. Pipe Dreams reflete sobre o modo como regimes autoritários protegem as representações de seu poder.
