Nostalgia 2005

This exhibition is the product of a personal and intense debate, about Reality; this debate was conducted over the last few troubled months of Egypt's life. I have cast myself into this trembling body and lived with it as it twists and turns through the City's streets and squares. Confronted with a multitude of questions about purpose, ambition and the future I find myself with no answers. Instead, I performed "Ancient Sacred Rituals", bartering Reality with Dream.

In the world of dreams, we sprout wings; grow lighthearted and more imaginative. I have chosen this world- or rather a moment in this world- to become part of it. I have mapped out its vocabulary: a blend of fantasies, ancient images and symbolic states, a language of glances, fleeting gestures and lost meanings.

In my use of color, line, and simplicity of composition I have tried to declare my affiliation to Beauty. I have lived an experience with powerful ties to the concept of time and entertained the idea of the hidden beauty of the old ... Nostalgia.

I know how hard it is to draw new meanings from familiar images; to take ancient symbols and display them in the present. Yet at the same time I have faith that Art has its own special laws and magic permitting us to draw together a multitude of conflicting images.
