Oreet Ashery and Larissa Sansour
Oreet Ashery was born in Israel and lives in London. Larissa Sansour was born in Palestine and lives in London. These two artists have created a very special graphic novel that raises questions on artistic practice, the nature of authority and art and politics, and offers an eye-opening take on Palestine.
Nonel and Vovel, the artists’ alter egos, are given superpowers from a virus compromising their creativity; with their new powers and the help of local ninja women, they strive to save Palestine.
The Novel of Nonel and Vovel presents a bold mixture of art, politics, games, sci-fi, storytelling and other experiments – all rattling and shaking up the most prevalent ideas, stereotypes and misconceptions of the Middle East.
