Kevork Mourad | Seeing Through Babel

Event Details

Inspired by the Old Testament story of Babel — described by Mourad as the moment diversity was created — the artist’s three-dimensional work explores the parable using visual imagery as a means to connect people across the language divide. The six-metre high hanging sculpture took nine days to create in situ, and aims to illustrate the origin-story that lies behind human diversity, and is designed to allow visitors to walk in and around it, allowing for an experiential consideration of its themes; namely the variety and plurality of languages and culture.
