Malak Helmy: Lost Referents of Some Attraction
Sharjah Gallery, The American University in Cairo
This solo show, curated by Beirut for the AUC Sharjah Gallery, presents works from the past five years of Malak Helmy`s practice. Lost Referents of Some Attraction brings together three films, an audio and two text-based works, in addition to a series of objects and spatial interventions. In these works, Helmy sets up environments within environments, presenting altered objects stripped of function as indexical referents within the space. They refer to other sites, studies, research . . . and each other.
