Biography
Lida Abdul lives in Kabul, a city she returned to after fleeing to India and then Germany as a political refugee when the Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan.
With this video and performance, Abdul allows the spectator to confront the personal and social sphere. Her way of working merges Western aesthetics with elements from the Arab, Islamic, Buddhist and Hindu traditions which have all influenced culture in her country.
The images of rubble clash with the desire to rebuild a house, perhaps a metaphor for a society in the shadows of a dominating culture, in turn incapable of generating anything positive simply by imposing its power.
