Within the scope of the promotion of international artists who express their appreciation of Egypt, Safarkhan opens an exhibition "The Green, the Street and the Scent of Life" by German-born artist Barbara Armbruster.
This is an interactive exhibition where the viewer experiences multiple artistic elements, including paintings, drawings and video art, all centring around the theme of the beautiful flora and fauna of Egypt, through the eyes of a passionate artist.
The exhibition includes a collaborative effort between students of the German school in Cairo, the artist and Safarkhan, through a project where they experience the process of being an active member of the community and of nature.
Barbara Armbruster’s work is about cultural, societal structures, spaces and identities within our global world.
Armbruster sees that "Plants had an essential meaning for our ancestors," underlining how she is fascinated by the "green alleys in the streets of Cairo, by the plants, little trees along or in front of buildings," and how this to her "stands for more than only the desire for green."
She conveys her observations through a variety of mediums including installation, drawing, painting, photography and video.
The opening of the exhibition will be accompanied by a reception in the presence of HE the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, Michael Bock and Mrs Dagmar Bock.
The exhibition will open on Thursday 19 May at 7 pm and will run until 15 June
Opening hours: Monday to Saturday - 10 am to 1.30 pm and 5 pm to 9 pm.
Address: 6 Brazil Street, Zamalek, Cairo
