About the Exhibition: 

Working in three-dimensional spaces, Jawa El Khash’s practice investigates nature, architecture, and immigrant and refugee culture. Her fantastical virtual reality work The Upper Side of the Sky resurrects the agriculture native to, and destroyed architecture of, the Syrian desert around Palmyra. A chrysalis chamber is also featured in this digital world, positing the monarch butterfly as a protagonist to explore metamorphosis, migration and return. The Butterfly Effect will employ holography to further El Khash’s exploration of these themes.
