Small Soft and Round
صغيرة طرية و مدورة

11 X 17 inches / 1000 multiples
Small Soft and Round (2015) is a two-sided, text-based multiple based on
a series of transcribed conversations between the artist and his mother Suad. The work is taken from video footage recorded by the artist and presented in the form of a film script. In the scene, Suad teaches Basil how to make Kaa’ek: small, soft and round cookies filled with dates, anise, and topped with sesame. The dialogue ebbs and flows between focused culinary lessons and observant cultural commentary. Here, everyday cultural practice is framed as performance and distributed as a giveaway.
This project is part of a long-term collaboration between Basil and Suad. Since 2011, they have worked on food-based projects including The Mobile Kitchen Lab and Pull, Sort, Hang, Dry and Crush.

Please join us on September 26 and 27 from 1:30-6PM. It's free and open to the public (no tickets required)
