Jumana Manna works primarily with film and sculpture. Her work addresses the body, nationalism, history and the construction of community.
Manna’s moving image work explores the ways in which power is articulated through relationships.
With her sculptures, she investigates the historical and political resonance of materials and the physical relationships between objects and bodies, drawing from sources including archaeological artefacts, car mechanics and the cultural symbolism of Modernist architecture.
The sculptures can be seen as abstractions, and allegorical interventions, whose wide variety of materials have included seatbelts from car morgues, waxed egg cartons, fake bricks, and skin-coloured silicon shrouds. They play with dualities of animate versus inanimate, surface versus structure, theatricality and the real.
