An exhibition and book signing of Ahmed Naji's new publication 'The Use of Life' in Alexandria

The Use of Life

An exhibition of Ayman El-Zorkany's visuals from The Use of Life, a novel by Ahmed Naji, will take place at art space Wekalet Behna in Alexandria on 26 March.  

The show features the illustrations of El-Zorkany "using shorthand and extending the material to take the audience through a unique visual experience, where the visual language is connected to the script in its structure and contradicting in its practices," a press statement read.  

The event will also include a book signing by Naji, a Cairo-based journalist and writer.  

The book was published last year by Dar Al-Tanweer.
