Areej Kaoud is a Palestinian visual artist raised in Sharjah and Montreal. Her art practice draws on her interest in narratives and disastrous scenarios. Emergency provisions are a common subject in her practice using writing, recording, performance art, data accumulation and installation. Kaoud’s art practice is concerned with diaspora psychology and emergency behaviour. Most of her concepts use language to articulate the distance between anxiety, preparedness and the humour which takes place in preparing for anticipated threats.
