EIF: It Will Live


Edinburgh International Festival

It Will Live

An impactful floating installation of a house in Ramallah, known, loved and photographed for 35 years

Enjoy this art installation by Leena Nammari hung on the facade of The Studio at the Festival Theatre throughout August.

Leena Nammari is a Palestinian artist printmaker based in Scotland. Her work has been part of group and solo exhibitions within Scotland and in Europe more widely. Alongside her exhibitions, she works with marginalised groups across Edinburgh to encourage social engagement, always remaining focused on maintaining a politically engaged practice.

Her Palestinian heritage and background forms the basis of all her work; her art is subtly loaded with the politics of the many but always reflecting the personal. Her images have something amiss in them – a sadness, an abandonment, a loss – allowing a little pause in the viewer which encourages them to question what they have seen.

The Refuge series is supported by British Council, Edinburgh Futures Institute at the University of Edinburgh and Claire and Mark Urquhart

Made possible through the PLACE programme

This event is Free and unticketed.
