THE JOURNEY, SOLO EXHIBITION OF KHALED ZAKI

“Mount the stallion of love and do not fear the path, love’s stallion knows the way exactly. With one leap, love’s horse will carry you home”
– Rumi

Next week we welcome you into The Journey, a Khaled Zaki solo exhibition. In bronze and marble Zaki captures the meditative and mesmeric swirl of the whirling dervish and the astounding elegance of their steed. His Sufis, spiralling on horseback, embody the intimate connection between man and beast and the notion of transcendence through movement.

In his art Khaled Zaki mines myriad aesthetic sources from ancient Egyptian statuary to Italian renaissance sculpture, and Egyptian modernism. Between 1988 and 1997, Zaki perfected his use of stone and bronze in the workshops of Pietrasanta Lu, Italy, a community known as the “City of Artists” where he amassed his extensive knowledge and honed formal skills in sculpture making. Khaled Zaki’s art has been acquired by significant public and private collections including that of the British Museum. Zaki has participated in numerous international exhibitions and biennales including the 55th international Venice Biennial and the 7th Beijing International Biennale (2017).
