The Amman-based gallery, Darat Al-Funun - The Khaled Shoman Foundation, will celebrate the life and art of Amal Kenawy
, an Egyptian visual artist who passed away on 22 August.
"I might have a heart that beats and functions regularly, but I cannot confirm that I am alive," Amal Kenawy wrote in a personal statement for The Room, a video and art performance she created in 2004.
Kenawy was awarded many prestigious awards, such as the Grand Prize at the 2012 Cairo Biennial, the 2010 Sharjah Biennial award, the Golden Prize at the 23rd Alexandria Biennial and the prize for the Best Animated Film at the 12th Cairo International Film Festival.
