Event Details

Yearning embodies the conflicting being navigating in time and space. In perpetual motion, one comes to be through constant phenomenological transformations. In her multi-media exhibited works, Azza Abo Rebieh deconstructs the struggles of the being, “that is the rhythm of the flutter of her wings give and take, make the path of her movements like a heartbeat and its eagerness, yearning, thirsty, to do everything and nothing…” Through her words and works of art, Abo Rebieh dismantles and reconnects the parts of one’s being. In this current exhibition Abo Rebieh puts on display a myriad of sketches, prints, paintings and watercolour, unveiling the transformability of the body by means of artistic endeavors. The Yearning exhibition is also the host of Nelsy Massoud’s sculpture titled Metamorphosis which will be exhibited at The Upper Gallery at Saleh Barakat Gallery, ground floor.

In Metamorphosis, invited artist Nelsy Massoud expands on the transformative aspect of the being. Existence is performative and metamorphic, entailing a constant assertion of the being through the mutability of the self. Similarly, “caterpillars turn into butterflies,” or when “materials take new forms,” the structural loofahs bare new life forms.
