Hanaa Malallah will be participating in the “Surviving the Long Wars: Reckon and Reimagine” exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center, part of the second Veteran Art Triennial and Summit from March 12—June 4, 2023. This is the first time her project “She/He Has No Picture” will be on display in its entirety. Previously, “She/He Has No Picture” was exhibited in 2019 as part of the MoMA PS1 show “Theater of Operations: The Gulf Wars 1991-2011” and in 2022 at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts in Malallah’s solo exhibition “2Rs: Ruins and Rubbles,” co-organized by Artzotic.
“She/He Has No Picture” is a commemoration of the victims of the bombing of Public Shelter n.25 in the Al Amiriyah neighborhood of Baghdad on the 13th of February, 1991. A booklet was published listing the names of the victims and an accompanying image. Only 100 victims had an image, the rest had the words “She/He has no picture.”
In its fully assembled form, “She/He Has No Picture,” is an expanded media wall installation with five constituents: Bas-relief Portraits, Brass-Plaques, Personal Numbers, Digitally Reconstructed Portraits, and a memorial wall.
