Inspired by found objects, personal archives and poetic experiences, Lebanese artists and filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige invent unique ways of navigating between art and film. Their documentaries, fictional films, photography, art installations, texts and performances develop narratives and images around stories kept secret, acting as a resistance to official history.
Two Suns in a Sunset, written in the three languages of artists Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige—Arabic, French and English—includes contributions by Philippe Azoury, Omar Berrada, José Miguel G. Cortés, Okwui Enwezor, Marta Gili, Boris Groys, Nat Muller, Anna Schneider, Brian Kuan Wood and Sharjah Art Foundation Director Hoor Al Qasimi
About the Artists
Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige collaborate as filmmakers and artists, producing cinematic and visual artwork that intertwines. For the last 15 years, they have focussed on the images, representations and history of their home country, Lebanon, and questioned the fabrication of imaginaries in the region and beyond. Their films have been multi-awarded in international festivals and enjoyed releases in many countries.
