Event description
Contemporary immersive art exhibition exploring the notions of belonging & gender, inspired by the ancient myth Gilgamesh.

About this event

In this immersive art exhibition of light paintings, music and metaphor, Asmaa Alanbari reinterprets the ancient story of Gilgamesh in a contemporary manner. Video projections are staged throughout the intimate space, inviting us to walk through the journey of Gilgamesh. Sounds of nature combined with the music of composer & performer Alya Al-Sultani provide the auditory backdrop to the visual journey.

The 3rd century Mesopotamian myth (present day Iraq) invites us to reflect on our contemporary society's relationship with women, and the abstract notions of journey and belonging.

In these contemporary times of uncertainty and indifference, Alanbari is highlighting the importance of preserving intangible heritage and culture, for their own intrinsic value and for their power as a source of hope for the future.
