Zena Assi @ Cromwell Place
23 February 2022 - 27 March 2022
Borrowing from symbolism and surrealism, the new series of works, Ode to a Minefield, create a direct dialogue between all the different genres in the practice of Zena Assi.
‘My work is a continuous obsessive experiment to try and portray the psychology of the modern-day surroundings and especially the urban setting of the Arab world. One must involve the layers of its history and heritage, taking into consideration the complexity of its social organizations, the diversity of cultures, the multiplicity of religions. There is a factor of compressed dynamics and pauses, silences and energies, that makes the portrait of such cities seem vitally, soulfully animalistic and human at the same time’. Zena.
