Sulaïman Majali

Sulaïman Majali (b. 1991, London, England) lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. Majali is an artist and writer who interrogates the spatiotemporal logics of the colonial and subsequent incarcerations of histories and their futures through a paradigm of object;image;space. The work considers its contexts as an age of anxiety, crises, collapse and multiplicities, it is a practice in which emphasis of the poetic and the strange(r) form an examination of our relationships with the political.  Group exhibitions and events include: something vague and irrational, with Ray Camara, Celine Gallery, Glasgow, Scotland (2019). assembly of the poets, a reading as part of EARTH HOLD, cur.Rachel Dedman, Laure Selys and Arjuna Neuman for Qalandiya International Biennial/Serpentine Galleries, London, UK (2018).
