Jamal Penjweny: Untitled [Sitting Soldier]

A limited edition photograph Untitled [Sitting Soldier] produced by Jamal Penjweny to coincide with his exhibition Saddam is Here at Ikon, 2014.

Ikon presented the first solo exhibition of Jamal Penjweny, including photography and video works reflecting on life in Iraq today. His work has been the subject of international attention following its inclusion in Welcome to Iraq, the Iraqi pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale, curated by Ikon Director Jonathan Watkins.

Key to this exhibition is the photographic series Saddam is Here (2009-2010), consisting of twelve images of Iraqi people in familiar surrounding, each holding a life-size picture of Saddam Hussein’s face in front of their own. Saddam’s likeness becomes a mask obscuring any expression of emotion, any gaze or possibility or sure identification.

This unframed edition comes with a signed certification.
