Event Details

Mashrabia Gallery of Contemporary Art is excited to announce the solo exhibition “Alexandria Blues” by the artist Amre Heiba.

Under the evocative title “Alexandria Blues” Amre Heiba presents his new exhibition including around 40 medium and small size pieces. Closely related to the rarefied atmosphere of the previous work, the paintings created during the 3 last years show a series of almost empty spaces where the human presence is a distant memory or something that didn’t happen yet. Common objects, abandoned and useless like the broken dollies or enigmatic like the red triangles, are the only inhabitants of these anonymous rooms – maybe the same infinitely repeated room playing the role of an interior landscape – becoming the metaphor of our more and more precarious existence in this world.
