The playground game of Rock, Paper, Scissors originated in China, was popularized by the Japanese, and can be seen on playgrounds everywhere. This book accompanies the exhibition at the National Pavilion of the United Arab Emirates at the 57th Venice Biennale, and explores the multifarious notions of time as a life practice, venturing beyond regimented definitions of art—seeping into cricket, music, folklore, heritage, and social clubs. The artists in “Rock, Paper, Scissors”—Nujoom Alghanem, Sara Al Haddad, Vikram Divecha, Ramin & Ronki Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian, Hind Mezaina, Deepak Unnikrishnan, WTD Magazine, Lantian Xie, Dr. Mohamed Yousif—enact a habitation of home through playful gestures and acts, in which bodies mark time and transform space.
