Khaled Zaki: Resurrection
19 March 2018Free
A series of nine new sculptures in marble by Zaki, a major pioneer of modernist sculpture in Egypt, exploring the relationship between form and material in the context of geopolitical unrest in the Middle Eastern region.
Each of the sculptures consists of six separate marble components arranged in varying compositions to represent figures in states of fear, defensiveness or repose. Inspired by the fragments of buildings and shrapnel littering the streets in the aftermath of the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 and the Egyptian protests of 2013 as well as ISIS terrorist attacks, Zaki attempts to symbolically rebuild crumbled societies by restoring order and shaping a better future – hence the title.
To 25 April.
