Jumana Emil Abboud uses drawing, video, performance, objects and text to navigate themes of memory, loss and resilience. She has consistently reflected a Palestinian cultural landscape in which the struggle for continuity amid the wider political context necessitates a constant process of metamorphosis and ingenuity. She has participated in numerous international group exhibitions over the last decade. This included the Venice Biennial, the Istanbul Biennial, the Bahrain National Museum, Manama and the Institute du Monde Arabe, Paris.
She currently lives and works in Jerusalem.
