Almas Art Foundation is delighted to announce its forthcoming week of projects celebrating the remarkable works of Souad Abdelrasoul.
Like a Single Pomegranate, curated by Sahar Behairy, will bring together a compelling selection of paintings and drawings by the Cairo-based artist. The exhibition will mark the launch of a short documentary film on the artist as well as a publication featuring insightful texts by Sahar Behairy, Dr Orabi Mohamed Fayad, and Fatima Ali, produced by Almas Art Foundation.
Souad Abdelrasoul’s art encapsulates moments of both struggle and triumph experienced by women navigating the complexities of a patriarchal system. Her work delves deep into the human experience, transcending conventional boundaries to offer a profound exploration of empowerment, self-discovery, and the intricate interplay between the human body and mind. Her creations are adorned with intricate symbols drawn from nature and enriched with literary references, expanding and enriching her characters’ stories. This exhibition promises to be a thought-provoking journey through art, challenging norms and inspiring a fresh perspective on life.
