Cut and Paste
An exhibition by Huda Lutfi
1 December 2013 - 8 January 2014
Factory Space, Townhouse Gallery, Cairo
This video documents the latest exhibition by Egyptian artist Huda Lutfi, which was featured as part of the Townhouse Gallery`s fifteenth anniversary celebrations. In "Cut and Paste" Lutfi seeks to present a psycho-geographic archive of the emotions, gestures, figures of speech, and images that circulated in public space during Egypt`s transitional period. The range of collages, found objects, and sculptures--all produced over the past two years--combine to create an impressionistic story of the recent past. Lutfi chose "Cut and Paste" as the exhibition title to refer to the material process of making collages, as well as the archival practice of collecting information from the Internet.
