Lackadaisical Sunset to Sunset, courtesy of the artist.

Accompanied by Lebanese musician Jana Jaleh, Al Solh creates a poignant performance narrating ‘her-stories’ inspired by Sri Lankan, Japanese and Arab women writers. She uses her tent as a lit oratory to narrate from it, speaking to her bodily clock, cleaning rituals, ideas and stories of time, of movement, of women, and of grandmothers’ liberation narratives. They stand in relation to the names of the hours in Arabic, compiled in a lexicon by Abu Mansour Al Thaalibi, a writer known for collecting epigrams in Arabic.
