Palm Trees Leave their Places: A Trilogy


17:50 min

3-channel video installation

Edition of 3 + 1 AP

Amongst the countless papers on which poetry anthologists write their notes appear – for very brief instances – some things that relentlessly try to explain strange phenomena that occurred throughout centuries of history and literature: palm trees leaving their places; poetry leaving its papers; and a poet burning all of his books.   Shot by: Vicken Vincent Avakian

About the Artist

Hussein Nassereddine (b. 1993) lives and works in Beirut. His work in installation, performance, video and writing originates from a practice around language that builds fragile monuments – some verbal, some sonic, some tactile – rooted in collective histories and resources of poetry, ruins, construction, and image-making. Nassereddine was a fellow in Ashkal Alwan’s Home Workspace program in 2018. In 2020, he published How to see the columns as palm trees, the seventh book in the Kayfa-ta series.
