It Will Live
  • Edinburgh International Festival

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.

Supported by British Council, Edinburgh Futures Institute at the University of Edinburgh and Claire and Mark Urquhart

Made possible through the PLACE programme

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
