‘Caravanserai’, an exhibition by Spanish artist Pilar Cossio, will open at Mashrabia Gallery of Contemporary Art on Thursday and run until 19 May.

The exhibited work dangles between photography and installation and is based on the artist’s work in the cities of Paris, Beirut and Essauoira.

Cossio’s work “takes us close to visual poetry, suggesting a world where reality is not determined by reason and rather it opens up towards a dreamlike and magical territory imbued with fragments of images collected in her trips to Paris, Beirut and Essauoira,” reads the press release issued by Mashrabia Gallery of Contemporary Art.

“The artist wisely moves between contemporary languages, creating an artistic practice that astonishes and amazes the viewer,” adds the press release.

Thursday 5 May, 7pm
Mashrabia Gallery of Contemporary Art,
8 Champollion Street, Cairo
The exhibition runs until 19 May
