"(Re)constructed Uncertainties," the three-piece exhibition currently up at The Hangar, the exhibition hall of UMAM Documentation and Research, looks back at Israel's 2006 war against this country.One is Mleeta, Hezbollah's Resistance Museum, officially known as the "Tourist Landmark of the Resistance".More than anywhere else, Haret Hreik is seen as Hezbollah central, so it sustained the heaviest air and sea bombardment in the summer of 2006 and was the focus of the most assertive reconstruction program, implemented not by the Lebanese state but by Hezbollah.A four screen, four channel work, "Constructed Futures: Haret Hreik" is preoccupied with voices reflecting upon Haret Hreik's post-2006 reconstruction. Formally, this piece evinces the same fondness for silent fixed frame photography, sometimes accompanied by ambient sound, or else by off-frame voiceover. The incongruities the artist finds in "Mleeta" and "Haret Hreik" are informative.
