"Avoid Bad Dreams", featuring works by Emirati artist Afra Aldhaheri, video works by Turkish artists Ali Kazma and Hale Tenger, German artist Heidi Bucher and Palestinian artist Shadi Habib Allah references the space of home as a space that oscillate between hospitality and hostility, questioning common ideas of home as a symbol of comfort, belonging and stability. The works in the show interrogate the idea of “home” and our attitude to objects, people and memories within through familiar and symbolic forms, presenting it not as a place of refuge and established order but as a site of upheaval, disorder and the uncanny.
