Event Details

Ayyam Gallery is pleased to present Immortal Moment – Coping with the Shock, a solo exhibition featuring Faisal Samra’s recent body of work. Please join us for the vernissage on February 27th from 6 pm – 9 pm, in presence of the artist.

This exhibition showcases the second body of work from the Immortal Moment project, in which Faisal Samra creates artworks through the accumulation of instances, pushing the viewer to question the opportunities of a single moment. In the first chapter of this project, Faisal describes the technique as capturing a moment and immortalizing it in time through gestural performances, serving as an expression of emotions. However, now, he defines the outcome as a “shock”. This exhibition will reveal the process of Coping with the Shock.
