Adel Abidin's exhibition "Life is short, let's have an affair" recounts a true life story of an intimate relationship that ends up in court.
This is the second time Adel Abidin's solo exhibition is organised at the MUUGallery. The first exhibition of his works at the MUU Gallery was in 2008.
This exhibition brings an authentic court case to the judgment of the audience. Through sound and video, the installation recreates the process of the court hearings which Abidin never attended but followed through officialdocuments.
Abidin recreates the scenario which includes a judge, a husband and his attorney, a young woman and her attorney, the courtroom stenographer and the attorney general. The installation is accompanied by prints of the actual official documents and an iPhone video to engage the audience on an intimate level.
