Out of Place salon, wed 24th of June, 20.00hrs
With Osama Dawod (Egypt) and Donna Akrey (Canada)
An evening where an Egyptian foreigner and a flaky Canadian tell about their work.
In his recent work – following a move to the US from Egypt – Osama Dawod has been preoccupied with that which is “out of place”: from the visual and the imaginary – to his position as a foreigner in a host(ile) environment. More information about Dawod: http://www.osamadawod.com
The work by Donna Akrey reflects her interest in the urban environment, language and communication, body and mind and the power of the habitual on our dreams and realities. Donna Akrey has a blog: http://mobiusstripmall.blogspot.com
Admission is free. The presentations are in English. The salon starts at 20.00. Doors open at 19.30.
