Passage is an immersive video and sound installation created by acclaimed poet, filmmaker and artist Nujoom Alghanem and features actress Amal Hawijeh. Filmed in the UAE and Venice, Passage was conceived and developed for the National Pavilion UAE’s exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia, with 2019 pavilion curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath. The work responds to the theme of La Biennale for that year, May You Live in Interesting Times, and explores themes of displacement and journeying.
