Mahmood Kaiss: Arabesque #3

Mahmood Kaiss:
Arabesque #3

The arabesque—an ornamentation
style stunningly intertwining vegetal or
geometric designs—is at the center of
Mahmood Kaiss' current installation,
which retains some traditional
arabesque characteristics, while making
far-reaching modifications in others.
Using transformation, abstraction
and hybridization, Kaiss examines
the severing of form from its familiar
image and its translocation into a
different stylistic, material, spatial
and theoretical world and deals with
questions of Islamic vs. western
culture, identification, belonging and
detachment.

 

The exhibition is supported by the Israel
Lottery Council for Culture and Arts
