Fault Lines is a solo presentation of recent works by Lebanese artist Ramzi Mallat, curated by Kirsty Flockhart. The exhibition will close with an artist talk on Saturday 2 December.
Ramzi Mallat will be in conversation with independent curator Najlaa El-Ageli and Yahya Zaloom, director of P21 Gallery. The talk will provide insight into the artist’s practice and cover themes raised by the works in the exhibition.
Living and working between London and Beirut, Ramzi Mallat explores the socio-political impact of globalisation on notions of identity and self. He hopes to broaden cross-cultural awareness with work that blends both familiar and unfamiliar aspects of culture while questioning the idea of the respective Other.
Drawing on a rich tapestry of theological and folkloric history of the Levant region, Mallat’s work challenges the role of tradition in conventional definitions of civilisation.
Ramzi Mallat is a multidisciplinary artist based between London and Beirut. He holds a BA in Fine Art from Lancaster University and a MA in Sculpture from the Royal College of Art, London.
