Hello Guys!
Let’s check out the fantastic Leila Heller Gallery and its 3 current exhibits (details below) - You can take a VIRTUAL 3D WALK at your own pace and choosing your own path, via the event link :)

About the exhibits:

MATERIAL ANATOMY (Francesca Pasquali)
Features wall reliefs and site-specific installations, and intricate sculptural structures made of manufactured plastic materials, prompting a dialogue with the region’s unique and nuanced relationship to petrochemicals. Tightly bound or folded together, the often monochrome structures follow rhythmic configurations, recalling coral and microscopic anatomies.

HABITAT (Melis Buyruk)
Showcases nine porcelain works where a ceramic topography of intricate flora and fauna are encased in wooden boxes, and granted their own habitat. In a mastery of porcelain, the traditionally feminised and overlooked art form associated with domestic life is re-interpreted as a medium that points to bio-futurist tensions.

NUQTA: THE DIACRITIC (Abdel Qader Al Rais)
Features a series of his paintings across the third period of his work, marked by his engagement with bringing abstraction and local cultural heritage into dialogue. Al Rais incorporates the contours of calligraphy as well as the rocky cliffs, deserts, and shores of the region’s unique natural world into his rigorous study of the fundamental elements of colour, form, and light.

Enjoy it and #stayhome :)
