In celebration of 60 years of Goethe Institute in Cairo, Egyptian artists Heba Abu El-Ela and Jacqueline George will present an interactive installation titled Spectrum on 10 May.
Spectrum is a live installation that combines sculpture, light and sound, and invites audiences to enter a space where these elements will interact with their movements.
Abu El-Ela is a light and visual artist who graduated in 2017 with a major in sculpture from Helwan Faculty of Fine Arts.
El-Ela then joined a light design workshop with the Swedish light designer Charlie Austrom and the French light designer Christoph Guillemert. She then joined another workshop in 2016 with Studio Khana at the Austrian Culture Center.
She took part in 2B Continued Festival 2018 as a light designer in a show directed by Mostafa Khalil tited I, and she was part of the light and video projection team at D-Caf Festival.
