Aya Haidar:
Year of Issue

10 May 2014 - 7 September 2014

Mezzanine Gallery

El-Sherbini's exhibition is complimented by Aya Haider's installations in the Mezzanine Gallery. Haidar's practice focuses on the recycling of found and disposable objects to make poetic works that explore loss, migration and memory, with a particular focus on the Middle East.

Her exhibition includes the work Year of Issue, 2013, an installation of 18 books representing the 18 countries across the MENA region, whereby each book shares the same year of publication as its respective country's year of independence. The choice of books highlights the reciprocity to their country's respective affairs of state and adds a certain ironic, incisive and perhaps even humorous dimension.
