Youmna Chlala

Artist in residence, Stockholm, June 13 – August 28,  2023

Youmna Chlala is an artist based in New York. Her work is an investigation of fate and architecture. Her current series, The Museum of Future Memories, is a collection of drawings, photographs, sculptures, and installations that imagine what will happen when the horizon line disappears. How will we know where we are? How can we find ourselves collectively through intimate encounters? The series is site-specific and has previously taken place in Norway, Brazil, New York, Dubai, and Denmark. The most recent iteration was about Brooklyn’s plants and flowers that are slowly migrating north to avoid the rising heat, and the adjacent species that are helping them move.
