Spring exhibition at Skriðuklaustur

Spring exhibition opening March 19th at Skriðuklaustur

Spring Exhibitions open from 19th March

This month, I am staying at the Klaustrid artist residency at Skriðuklaustur.

You can see my recent works during the exhibition opening March 19th.

From Beirut to Brussels
This exhibition shows some recent works I have been doing since 2014. During that year, I produced a daily drawing on recycled material (newspaper and fabrics), about what was happening around me in Beirut and in the news. The result is a wall installation of drawings witnessing major events and daily life seen from this city.
As I left Lebanon in 2015, my work turned into sketchbooks and drawings commenting on the different social and political realities I faced while traveling in Europe. 
One part of the exhibition is the work in progress I am working on here in Iceland. The installation will allow the visitor to witness my path as an artist for the last 2 years.
