Emotion in motion Mazen khaddaj 24 aug - 18 sep 2016
In this collection, multidisciplinary artist Mazen Khaddaj considers the human form in relationship to a collectivity and individual desires, whether as a group, a pair or a singularity. Encompassing both painting and video installation, Khaddaj choreographs movements that open up the possibility for self-discovery within new forms of community, however fleeting or long standing those might be. Using translucent brush strokes and flat, saturated color fields, Khaddaj's paintings express both the celebration and anxiety that comes with being with others. His video installation, 'The Eye', invites viewers to watch from above as the artist performs a series of actions on the floor of his studio.
