"The Passions of the Trash Drive: A Group Exhibition"
An exhibition by Malak Helmy
November - December 2013
Nile Sunset Annex, Cairo
For Malak Helmy’s recent exhibition, Nile Sunset Annex was extended onto its roof to accommodate a gleaming salt structure and amorphous blue sculptures made specifically for the site. The exhibition presents a selection of works from Helmy`s ongoing series “Records from the Excited State,” which is inspired by Egypt`s North Coast region.
In this video, Helmy explains her interest in the North Coast region, as well as her collaboration with the Nile Sunset Annex team to produce the site-specific sculptures and an interactive online publication.
