Am I the Ageless Object at the Museum?, 2018
Directed by Noor Abuarafeh ( Duration 15 min)
Am I the Ageless Object at the Museum? is a commissioned work by the A.M. Qattan Foundation through “Fiction” programme . It is a 15-minute flm based on spoken narrative, the text constructed in parallel with several visits to diferent zoos and zoological societies in Palestine, Switzerland and Egypt. The flm is the last episode of a long-term project in which each episode deals with the concept of museums from a diferent perspective. Te flm deals with the construction of the zoo and its historical relation to museums from on the one hand and the relation between zoos and cemeteries from the other hand. Tese three components are similarly related to history and are presented in a similar way. Abuarafeh received the the A.M. Qattan Foundation’s Young Artist of the Year Award (second prize).
