Bassam Issa Al-Sabah and Jennifer Mehigan

Taking place at transmediale studio, the Ireland based artists Bassam Issa Al-Sabah and Jennifer Mehigan will transform the studio into the fantasy world of a group of goddesses and their familiars.


A group of goddesses and their assembly of familiars, pets, servants, and technologies are lounging.
These women are hot.
These women are bored.
These women are plotting.
They generate heat and they seek revenge.

Commissioned for transmediale 2024, Uncensored Lilac is an exhibition by Bassam Issa Al-Sabah and Jennifer Mehigan.

Set in a dreamlike hallucinatory landscape that constantly mutates, the assembly has been invaded and altered by the toxicity of climate collapse, making them nurturing but venomous.

Questioning how we embody and are altered by climate crisis, Bassam Issa Al-Sabah and Jennifer Mehigan will present a new CGI film alongside a new series of 3D prints, paintings, and sculptures.


  • The exhibition is part of Zeitgeist Ireland 24, an initiative of Culture Ireland and the Embassy of Ireland in Germany.
