Jananne Al-Ani

Solo show 'Landmarks' opens at Al-Anbar Gallery

Ab-Anbar presents Landmarks, a solo exhibition by London-based Iraqi-born artist and previous Matt's Gallery trustee, Jananne Al-Ani. Open Tuesday 10 October through to 11 November 2023.

Ab-Anar Gallery
34 Mortimer St

The exhibition marks the 20th Anniversary of the Iraq War, an event that casts a long shadow over Al-Ani's practice, Landmarks highlights preoccupations that have persisted over time and continue to reverberate throughout this distinctive body of work.

With photographic and moving image work spanning more than two decades, the exhibition also includes the new film Sounds of War II combining subtly animated archival photographs with contemporary aerial photographs of the ghostly footprints of US airfields across rural East Anglia which were decommissioned after the end of the Second World War.

There will also be a talk with Shuman Basar 5pm, October 12 at the gallery.
