Solo exhibition by Hiba Alansari
Curated by Ayham Majid Agha

Step into the mesmerizing world of ‘Horizontal’ – a captivating solo exhibition by Hiba Alansari, curated by Ayham Majid Agha, as part of the Artémon series.

Where the convergence of elements occurs, and earth and sky meld into a singular surface, paradoxically unmet. This is where vision eludes the grasp of the mind, embarking on a solitary journey, sketching impressions and fantasies that materialize solely at this juncture. The sole straight line that transmutes distance into curvature and arrests the flow of time. Here, Libya and Syria coexist and the Danube finds itself flowing through Tokyo. On that line, a forest transforms into a cloud, and from this transition, everything begins.

Hiba Alansari will exhibit her ceramic and metal works that encapsulate the interplay between the solid and the soft by melting metal and firing clay with the same fire; the fire that bears new creations. Hiba Alansari (b. Bani Walid, Libya) lives and works in Berlin. Her practice blurs the lines between sculpture and performance, as she experiments with material expression of the process of reckoning with trauma and violence.

Hiba studied sculpture and painting at the Institute of Fine Arts in Damascus (2008-2012) before receiving her MFA in sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich (2017) by Prof. Gregor Schneider. Hiba has exhibited widely in the Middle East and Europe. In 2017, she was awarded the prize for Outstanding International Students by Akademie der Bildenden Künste München. Currently her work is exhibited at The King is Dead, Long Live the Queen exhibition at the Museum Frieder Burda curated by Udo Kittelmann.

The exhibition will be open:

Thursdays 16:00-20:00

Fridays 14:00-18:00

Sundays 16:00-20:00

Curators and Monsters:

Artémon—free your art monster. Is there a monster that stands with the curators, supporting their ideas and visions? Is it the same monster that stands behind the artworks of the artists? We look into this relationship between artists and curators and the distance which separates them that could possibly be the monster.
