WALID ABU SHAKRA: MINTARAT ALBATTEN

WALID ABU SHAKRA: MINTARAT ALBATTEN

A comprehensive selection of prints by Walid Abu
Shakra (b. 1945, Umm el-Fahem; lives in London).
The title of the exhibition refers to a guard's post
(Mintara) and metaphorically reflects a process
whereby Abu Shakra, returning to his childhood
memories—when the guard's post was hidden
among orchards and cacti—becomes the guard
who grants a possibility of eternity to those
disappearing views.
