Azza Zein Tashabok

Opening: Wednesday July 10th, 6-8pm Dates: July 10 - Aug 3rd

In the future, we will sit in.
We will sit inside the limousine
that becomes the sea.
The lip-shine requests:
“Let me get out of the bag, use me”.
Relics of resilience,
the objects refuse to rest.
Lip-shine, the ring, the henna designs,
The camel-milk bottle, the limousine.
Confidently they stroll.

Tashabok presents ficto-critical videos, inspired by collaborative drawing sessions, and conversations with artists and participants. The ongoing project since 2020 proposes a counter-geography of displaced objects and alternative mapping of migrant materials based on playful drawing, and storytelling. So far, the collaborative drawing sessions took place in Mbantua/ Alice Springs, O’ghe P’oghe/Santa Fe (U.S.A), and Narrm/Melbourne. Tashabok was partly funded by the 2022/23 Small Project Grants Program (City of Yarra).

Azza Zein is an interdisciplinary artist and writer living in Narrm/Melbourne. Her artistic research focuses on materialising the fluid relationships between body/object, land, and labour. Her writings often explore how artworks comment on the dematerialisation of the economy and the invisibility of labour. She is interested in a revaluation of the decorative act and migrant materials from a perspective that relates modernity’s iconoclastic aesthetics with the violence of displacement.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its principal arts investment and advisory body.
