‘While You Were Sleeping’ brings together the work of two Berlin-based artists Hiba Alansari and Fadi Al-Hamwi. The joint presentation provides a view into the conceptual and material dialogue between their practices, both concerning themselves with lending physical shape to the human experience of war. The works express this in the context of the Syrian conflict, from which both the artists left for Germany. Exhibition is now showing at Contemporary Art Platform Kuwait, and is supported by the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen.
This is the second reiteration of Fadi al-Hamwi and Hiba Alansari: While You Were Sleeping exhibition was originally presented at East of Elsewhere at Vardaxoglou in London in July 2018.
The exhibition is running from November 20 until the new year.
