Arwa Aburawa & Turab Shah - And still, it remains
LUX is pleased to announce the first London solo exhibition by artists Arwa Aburawa and Turab Shah in collaboration with Open City Documentary Festival.
‘And still, it remains’ is a new artists’ film that examines time, toxic colonialism and how we survive the end of our world. In 2021, radioactive sand resulting from French nuclear bombs travelled in the winds all the way from the Algerian Sahara back to France. The bombs had been detonated in Algeria back in the 1960s. These returning winds were a reminder that the environmental legacies of colonialism cannot be forgotten or contained; it also raised the more pertinent question of how people live with the afterlife of toxic colonialism.
