Dark Water, Burning World

12 March '18 at 5:30 pm - 15 March '18 at 12:00 am

Dark Water, Burning World, is an installation of 1,000 miniature boats made from recycled bicycle mudguards, jam-packed with upright spent matches in which Syrian artist, Issam Kourbaj, evokes the plight of his fellow Syrians.

On the morning of Monday 12th March, 2018, Kourbaj will install Dark Water, Burning World on the floor of King’s College Chapel.

The installation will remain in Chapel until March 15th, which is the 7th anniversary of the Syrian uprising. In the morning the artist will publicly de-install Dark Water, Burning World, which will then be replaced by seven candles at the Chapel altar.
