The Hereafter, 2016

Old Commercial Press

The Hereafter* is a new film and a system of signage produced for the Jerusalem Show VIII. It is based upon the 1992 film Guelwaar by Ousmane Sembene in which a man is buried in the wrong grave. As a sequel, The Hereafter commences when its protagonist arrives at the wrong heaven, and must find how to get by in this unforeseen circumstance. The work spans both exhibitions ‘Before’ and ‘After’ in its charming and yet wholly sincere conjuring of the Beyond.

A commission of Al-Ma’mal Foundation, produced with the support of the Mondriaan Fund.
