Albareh Art Gallery is pleased to invite you to a solo exhibition titled Wanderings by artist Faika Al Hassan at its premises in Adliya, Bahrain on Tuesday, October 14th . The opening reception will be under the patronage of HE Shaikh Rashid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa at 7 pm. The exhibition will end on the 4th of November 2014.
Al Hassan's latest body of work is at once poignant and whimsical. Wanderings... is a play on words as much as it is a visual play, presenting itself to the viewer as paintings of neatly packed suitcases framed within the tight confines of an airplane window. Despite the overt travel reference, the journey is not a physical one. It is Al Hassan's own ‘wanderings', her exploration of an inner world of memories, hopes and fears, an imaginary mindscape populated by little animals and little people spilling out of old fashioned luggage or draped over toy chairs as if awaiting the start of a concert. It is her own personal baggage that she invites the viewer to explore.
