On refrains, sets and a backdrop, 2006
digital video, 42 mins

We’re by the sea now, 2006 is of and about the city, a subject that is inextricably linked to the work of Hala Elkoussy. Yet, centre stage is given over to the inhabiting citizen through the presentation of an array of seemingly disparate anecdotal events, personal accounts, tales and hearsay. The piece makes no attempts at producing mega narratives. The fragmented structure in the form of vignette-like chapters (13 in total) further disrupts the production of a unilateral stable meaning.
