Event description
Immersive multimedia contemporary art installation about the search for eternal life, inspired by the ancient myth Gilgamesh.

About this event

In this immersive 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, to the backdrop of enchanting sounds.

The 3rd century Mesopotamian myth (present day Iraq) is inspiration for this 21st century production, inviting us to reflect on ourselves as individuals and as a society with a fragile environment.

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

Alanbari is a visual artist, curator and art director with a background in architecture: www.alanbari.co.uk
