JUDE ZAWAIDEH: PULSE
In Pulse, Zawaideh explores the duality of impermanence and permanence within one’s reality. The very nature of the continuously distinctive self is challenged by the various contexts it is placed within, uncovering invasive truths. Some with physical connotations and others intangible, similar to the way a memory evokes a physical response from the body. The series invites the viewers to let go of every quintessential version of themselves and become immersed in the unknown.
The core piece Circulation contextualizes the multiplicity of the bodily self by examining how aspects of a complete whole could feel disconnected despite their apparent connection. Every piece serves as a reflection of the artist's reality at different moments in time within different spaces, which all contribute to the experience of a self.
