The Mashrabia Gallery of Contemporary Art will launch the new exhibition ‘Serendipity’ for artist Ibrahim El-Haddad on 1 July and until 31 August.
The exhibition is a continuation of the artist's last solo exhibition 'Simple Things' held at the same gallery.
The Cairo-based El-Haddad returns with a new body of work that is deeper and more powerful than ever, yet imbued with a strong sense of calm and vulnerability.
“His figures, which evoke ancient Egyptian physical features, are represented in all their simplicity, stripped of all artifice or pretentiousness, leaving only what is essential, their noble presence and the fragility of their being," the notes to the exhibition read.
"By travelling through Ibrahim El-Haddad’s exhibition, the viewer undertakes a journey of introspection and self-exploration, giving him the courage to look towards the distant horizon in all tranquillity, serenity and without being afraid of what is yet to come, in all serendipity."
