Timo Nasseri: All the Letters in All the Stars
Maraya Art Centre in collaboration with Sharjah Islamic Arts Festival presents Timo Nasseri’s first solo show in the UAE. Its starting point is the artist’s take on the story of Ibn Muqla, a 10th century calligrapher who claimed to have found four missing letters in the Arabic language. The works are a combination of new and older pieces, which highlight the different mediums of his practice while putting them all into a larger conversation between fragmentation and order, in the pursuit of the infinite.
Established in 2006, Maraya Art Centre is a three-storey non-profit creative space located in Sharjah, UAE. Since its inception, Maraya has offered the public an innovative exhibitions programme, showcasing the work of leading Middle Eastern and international artists. The centre also boasts multi-media facilities, a video archive, an art library and a regular public programme of workshops and events designed by its in-house team and guest curators.
