About Jassem Hindi 

Jassem El Hindi – artist sound performance writing transmitting.

Jassem Hindi was an artist-in-residence at Plantelor 58 in the frame of the Imagine Human:6, the white cube declination of the Imagine human performative research platform, initiated by Adriana Gheorghe, where each artist curated their own day. The week-long event of performances was hosted by Anca Poterasu Gallery during 13-18 October 2019.

“My work is made out of nervousness and necessity, haunted by the voices of others. Recently I have been working on death poetry, as an aural understanding of slow (unseen, impalpable) violences and slow revolutions. I am looking at this double-bind of the haunting: that which roams unseen and quiet upon the land signals that what is not here is moving us. I use, edit, corrupt and celebrate.”

Imagine Human:6, 2019


During his residency, Jassem Hindi participated in the performance ‘Imagine human’ alongside international and romanian artists.

“ ‘Imagine human‘ is a performative program initiated by Romanian artist Adriana Gheorghe. Part of her artistic practice is curating contexts in the form of performative frequencies where life and live art meet differently, producing new forms of life.

Imagine that human are not something to overcome, but something to yet arrive to. Imagine that the world were not so utterly sad right now and there is still space for imagination, action and transformation quite at hand. Imagine that performativity and performance were not the abused notions they kind of are, but the frequency of attention, where human became a matter of aesthetics, of imagination and event, so that all those attending a performance, on both sides of reception, get invited to a space of possible reformulation of themselves, of society, of reality. Imagine performativity to be the nice thing that spoils given formats inducing intermedial panic (it might look like a performance, but..) and that indeterminacy is such a poetical and political force!”

The project was organized by The Cultural Association Solitude and co-financed by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund. Please visit Anca Poterasu Gallery website for more images and information about the performance event.
