Swiss binding. Publisher's description: Presenting the work of recipients and shortlisted artists of the 9th Abraaj Group Art Prize, this double publication is the second award catalog from Abraaj Group focusing on contemporary artists of Middle Eastern descent. In the first volume, Syntax and Society, the structure and meaning of language and the role it plays in society is investigated in the work of the three shortlisted artists -- Dina Danish, Mahmoud Khaled and Basir Mahmood. The second volume, Oh Shining Star Testify, focuses on the work of award winning artist duo Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme. Their video work commissioned for the prize, Only the beloved keeps our secrets, examines how modern-day technologies enable a continued existence for the deceased. Found material, including images, texts and testimonies, are collaged together to suggest a Palestinian narrative of collective history. Along with curator Nav Haq's insightful essay is a glossary of quotations from philosophical and literary writers who inform the duo's process.
