For this year’s Art Paris Art Fair, Galerie Tanit (Beirut, Munich) will be presenting “Sourced From Mother Earth”, a solo show by Syrian artist Fadi Yazigi that includes the artist’s latest bronze sculptures and reliefs on clay.
The “diary” tablets, as Yazigi sees his reliefs, convey movement, emotion and a powerful vision of humanity. They’re intimate serene scenes between families and friends. Amidst them, is the monster that has devoured everything.
“The Ball”, is the artist’s latest bronze sculpture and first time on display. It evokes time, the life cycle, or Mother Earth. Yet it resembles a mine from World War II that may explode at any moment.
“The creatures around it are us, with our dreams, tragedies and destinies, with the little hope we have for some light and love”, Yazigi says, “Mother Earth energizes me and constantly reminds me that I still have a purpose in this life.”
Bus Expo Project:
From 17th March to 5th April the Air France airport busses will feature temporary exhibitions as part of the Bus Expo project. The aim is to make contemporary art accessible to the widest possible audience. Bus Expo and Art Paris Art Fair have joined forces to display the work of five artists selected from among the solo shows at the fair. Fadi Yazigi’s “The Ball” sculpture got selected amongst the five works.
