Khaled Zaki: Resurrection
Tabari Artspace presents a series of nine new sculptures by Khaled Zaki, a major pioneer of modernist sculpture in Egypt. These marble works explore the relationship between form and material in the context of geopolitical unrest in the Middle Eastern region and reflect Khaled’s aspirations for a brighter, more hopeful future. Inspired by the fragments of buildings and shrapnel littering the streets in the aftermath of the Egyptian Revolution of 2011 and the Egyptian protests of 2013 as well as the ongoing unsettlement across Egypt, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, the artist attempts to symbolically rebuild crumbled societies; to restore order and shape a better future.
Tabari Artspace, formerly Artspace Dubai was founded in 2003. The gallery represents a range of established artists and is dedicated to the global promotion of modern and contemporary Middle Eastern art.
