    Nature of Mind

    Solo Exhibition, Bashar Alhroub

    Opening on December 5, 2013, at 6:00 pm

    The solo retrospective exhibition of Bashar Alhroub tracks the artist’s work over the past four years. Alhroub’s artworks are multifaceted: while some are shown in public spaces others are displayed in specific locations, and the artworks use mixed media. His works are majorly self-portraits depicted over the years.

    “Nature of Mind” captures that moment when all things are considered as either evolving or dissolving into nothingness. This “nothingness” is not empty space; it is rather a space of potentiality. The white space that repeats in Alhroub’s artworks is a complete energy of light. It stands for wholeness and completion, and it represents openness and truth. Negative space forms an interesting or artistically relevant shape, and such space is occasionally used as the “real” subject of an image.

    Alhroub’s work has dealt directly with the polemics of a place, how to humanise it, and its influence on our creativity. He asserts his identity as essential and perhaps born out of those places. We all want to feel that we belong to a social and cultural community, constantly longing for a feeling of attachment and rooted in a particular place with a sense of significant ownership of that place. His work is deeply influenced by these socio-political sentiments. Questions such as “Who are we?” are often intimately related to the question “Where are we?” - so inextricably bound to defining our location in relation to self and others. His recent work has begun to engage with the search into the self, and he has therefore used the body as signifier. The work often shows threatened self-identity through the process of scrutiny and experimentation. The work also deals with personal vulnerability and an experience of existential anxiety strongly associated with issues such as religion, nationalism, conflict, and identity construction. The work looks for meanings not in the individual sign but in the context of exile and fragmentation.

    “Nature of Mind” will be held in various display areas that include the space of Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center and that of the French Cultural Center.

    Curator: Rula Khoury
