about the residency

Diana Jabi was invited to the residence programme by curator Abir Boukhari during spring 2018. She participated in the mini festival The Fittja Kitchen Warm Up where she performed her work “” by creating a map of Damascus using different kinds of sweets. When the map was finished, everyone could eat of the sweets until it all was gone.

The map of Damascus is returning motif in Diana’s work, like a memory that changes and takes new forms over time. In the performance she connects the city of Damascus with Stockholm, where the pieces of candy becomes something common to both places.
