The Novel of Nonel and Vovel 2009

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.
