Rocket bungee jumping, dance the salsa, last park bazaar of the season or a festive Greek bouzouki night – what will you do for fun this weekend?

Sports & Outdoors
Rocket Bungee at The Pearl Qatar
rocket bungeeExperience a whole new level of bungee jumping with Rocket bungee at The Pearl-Qatar. Not for the faint-hearted! Rocket Bungee is a reverse bungee jump starting with the person being attached to the ground and wearing a body harness with the bungee rope tying him to a steel cage. As the cage approaches an elevated height mark, the elastic is stretched to its limits until the guide unhooks the jumper from the ground and shoots him off like a rocket. Then, comes the experience of the free fall as the person will be swinging back and forth until coming to a standstill as the cage descends back to the ground.

Etel-MathafMathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art in Qatar presents an exhibition of the work of Lebanese-American visual artist, poet, playwright and essayist Etel Adnan in All Her Dimensions that is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist. Similar to nature consisting of many dimensions, the artistic and literary oeuvre of Etel Adnan contains many different aspects. Through the exploration of this artist’s multidimensionality, the exhibition will highlight the diversity in her work. Providing an extensive overview, the display at Mathaf will include Adnan’s paintings, drawings, leporellos, tapestries, writings and films from the 1960s onwards. [Source: Mathaf]

Mona Hatoum: Turbulence
mona hatoumThe exhibition Mona Hatoum: Turbulence brings to the forefront the diversity of Mona Hatoum’s work over the last 30 years. Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, the exhibition’s premise builds on the artist’s topical work Turbulence (2012), a 4 x 4 metre square composed of thousands of glass marbles laid directly onto the floor. Placed exactly at the centre of the exhibition, this installation lies at the heart of a linear but non-chronological trajectory whereby a number of unexpected juxtapositions echo the complexity through which the artist has managed to challenge, and at times disturb, our experience of the ordinary.
