'There is nothing left' in Alexandria

Ahram Online, Sunday 4 Dec 2011

A new exhibition 'There is nothing left' will open at the Alexandria Contemporary Arts Forum on Thursday 8 December


In a new exhibition ‘There is nothing left’ by Céline Condorelli and Uriel Orlow, different works are in dialogue with each other in a new multi-part installation.

‘There is nothing left’ explores blind spots, unexpected epilogues and disappearances in the grand narratives of history, starting with Alexandria and the Suez canal in twentieth century Egypt. A series of installations engage with the constitutive movements affecting time and space: movements of people and goods, the flow of capital, political movements, removal of statues (and regimes) and migrating species.

The exhibition is accompanied by an artist book, Terrains Vagues, Persistent Images, designed by Sophie Demay and Lola Halifa-Legrand. It includes interviews with Bassam El-Baroni, Marianne Hultman, Jean-Marie Straub, and text by Gilane Tawadros.

The exhibition opens on Thursday 8 December at 6pm. It will continue until 12 January 2012.
