Rosalind Nashashibi


June 27 – September 1, 2019

Caring and forms of communal life have been a consistent theme in the oeuvre of Rosalind Nashashibi, who examines them in light of the specific political, social, and historical conditions that shape them. The private meets the political; in interweaving the two, the artist sometimes emphasizes political concerns, as in the film Electrical Gaza, which earned her a nomination for the prestigious Turner Prize in 2017; private aspects are the focus in other works, like the widely acclaimed film Vivian’s Garden (2017), which was commissioned for documenta 14 (2017): a portrait of the lives and relationship of the artists Elisabeth Wild and Vivian Suter, a mother and daughter who live largely in seclusion in the Guatemalan rainforest.


Rosalind Nashashibi was born in Croydon, England, in 1973 and lives and works in London.
