Frog's Shadow Book Signing and Pop-up Exhibition by Hosam Elsawah at Diwan
Hosam: "I have no limits in the use of media to express different things and writing does not intimidate me. I see that I have constant capacity to learn. I wrote poetry because, at that moment, I felt I could not express myself through the drawings only."
As part of a larger project entitled "Soluble Islands", the artist uses different media such as painting, writing, videos and installations, aiming to explore and examine our reality, its fragility and its battles against us.
The event included a round table with poet and literary editor Ahmed Ayad, Professor of Helwan University Ayman al-Samri and Professor of Academy of Arts, Haggag Abu Gabr, and a pop-up exhibition of some drawings from the artbook.
The project was funded by Al Mawred Al Thaqafy and published by Madarat for Research and Publishing.
