Medrar for Contemporary Art

18 February 2024 - 10 March 2024

We are pleased to announce Radical Echoes: Motherhood, undergrowth, and Shelter

Exhibition by Alaa Ayman, Mariam Soliman, and Mariam Fayek

In Radical Echoes, three artists—Alaa Ayman, Mariam Soliman, and Mariam Fayek—explore creating some sort of visual narratives touching on themes of the undergrowth, motherhood, and shelter. Their aim is to chase passing moments that remain frozen in time, transcending temporal boundaries. They weave together threads of complex memories, significant events, and the profound journey of womanhood, drawing from personal experiences.

As Alaa gathers tales, random stories, and memories from her collection of photographs and videos, she finds inspiration in tracing her own thoughts, depicting and recreating them as a form of self-expression. While Mariam Soliman documents her exotic perspective on the concept of tribe or family, and the public happenings, with a sarcastic tendency. As for Mariam Fayek, she embodies her personal experience of the journey of motherhood and its altered emotions, exploring the notion of the body through various mediums.

The exhibition opens on Sunday, February 18th, 2024, from 7 – 9 PM at Medrar

and runs until Sunday, March 10th, 2024, from 4 – 9 pm except Fridays in Medrar.
