Event Details

Zawyeh Gallery presents an exhibition of rare and special works by the late Palestinian artist, Sager Al Qatil (1959 – 2004). This unique exhibition will showcase 30 pieces, not previously exhibited. It will also feature a short film on the artist by Noor Abu Arafeh, which was shortlisted for the A.M. Qattan Foundation’s Young Artist of the Year Award in 2014.

Sager Al Qatil was born in Al Amari Refugee Camp, Ramallah in 1959, and raised in Jabalia Refugee Camp in Gaza. A self-taught artist and an early member of The League of Palestinian Artists, he held his first exhibition at Birzeit University in 1985 and this was followed by another solo show at Al Hakwati Theater, Jerusalem in 1986. He participated in a number of exhibitions in Italy, Switzerland, France, Holland, United States, Belgium and Egypt.

His surrealist work is often described as uncanny, depicting trauma and adverse early experiences, which art enabled him to escape.

Al Qatil died at the young age of 45 in Holland in 2004.
