Medrar for Contemporary Art, Cairo
Cairo-based sculptor Alaa Abd El Hamid attempts to incorporate viewers into his latest exhibition. Through a series of mirrored objects, placed around the gallery space, a photograph and a laser show, he hopes they would reflect on their relation to their surrounding and one another. The shape of the pyramid is a recurring motif in the exhibition as Abd El Hamid notes in this video interview. The artist wished to explore how the ancient Egyptian civilization might have developed this shape had it persisted.
