Event Details

Participating artists : Ahmed Yaser, Mahmoud Qabil, Marwa Atwa, Rawan Abbas and Sara Ayman.

“We sit down… every night in our small garden, just five seats as if the world is void around us, contemplating what surrounds us in our daily routine, watching the swing in confusion… Is it swaying in response to the wind or are we sharing someone else’s fun time in parallel universe, looking at the lemon trees and asking? How does it give us its fruits so easily, if it were for us, we wouldn’t present anything for free. We forget our coffee as usual until we it became a habit to enjoy it as cold, joking with each other about whether coffee is originally a hot drink or are we are the ones that choose to drink it that way in a touch of rush, the simplest things in our garden are very complicated, as it is within ourselves”.
