The gallery showcased a wide range of sculptural installations and artworks, which encompassed pieces like “Odalisque” created by Anastasia Nysten. This particular artwork involved the use of gold metallic real leather and varied-density polyurethane form filling. Another notable piece was “Ready, Aim, Fire” by Jean Boghossian, which combined color, pigment, fire, and smoke in an acrylic on canvas composition. Additionally, the exhibition included “Media Shout,” a painted stainless steel artwork by Nadim Karam.

Garo Bardakjin, who represents the international relations of Jean Boghossian’s artwork, discussed the significance of Boghossian’s use of fire as a medium in an interview with The Peninsula. Bardakjin emphasized that fire is an extremely powerful and destructive element, and employing it as a medium in artistic expression adds a unique and intense dimension to the artwork.
