Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige: Two Suns in a Sunset/Se souvenir de la lumière
Inspired by found objects, personal archives and poetic experiences, Lebanese artists and
filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige invent a unique way of navigating between art
and film. Their documentaries, fictional films, photography, art installations, texts and
performances develop narratives around stories kept secret, acting as a resistance to official
history. Functioning as a guide for an exhibition traveling between Sharjah, Paris, Munich and
Valencia as well as a monograph, Two Suns in a Sunset, written in the three languages of the
artists—English, French and Arabic—surveys a three-decade-long collaboration, which includes
the 21 works and 6 full-length films.
