Nour Hassan, Drive, 2019

The scene is set at a bus stop, where some are waiting for the bus, but in the foreground we have what appears to be a homeless man pushing a woman in a dinged-up shopping cart, who is not happy to be carted around. Hassan writes that “these figures are in transit, waiting at a bus stop – not settled where they are, nor are they where they want to be, if they know where that is.” Hassan likens their experience to that of refugees from war-torn countries, forced to relocate to other strange lands where their future is uncertain and they feel that they are in a constant state of displacement.
