Locating Existence

Bassam Kyrillos

15 MAY - 31 MAY 2015

Inhabiting the border zones between devastation and renewal, Bassam Kyrillos creates sculptures of an alternate urbanity; a place bearing witness to its history and simultaneously regenerating itself. These structures bear the marks of war and also burst with organic potential, searching for strategies of survival that are essential to the continuation of life.
Using metal, cement and soil, which are markers of place and habitation, Kyrillos forges sculptural monuments which honor the devastation and resolute hope that exists at the foundations of life.
