Safwan Dahoul: Repetitive Dreams
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
In an exploration of dreams through painting and animation, Syrian artist, Safwan Dahoul seeks shelter from political turmoil in his first body of work since he fled Damascus for Dubai. In a show of quiet escapism, we see his late wife bent in a puppet-like slump, her definition drained with each repetition. Huge, smooth wave-like lines of figure silently emerge from voids of monochrome and checkerboard baths. Blanketed in painful lethargy, Dahoul's work is melancholic but beautiful; a striking show for the artist's Uk solo debut.
