Herbert Read Gallery, UCA Canterbury

A project by the artist Hala Georges

This exhibition functions as a counter-point to the mainstream media news about the on-going war in Syria by focusing on the intimate communications between the artist and her family back in Damascus. Hala Georges, who arrived to the UK four years ago, has produced a series of films, animations, audio pieces, and an installation inspired by the testimonies and long-distance conversations with her friends and relatives. The presentation of these materials in the gallery creates a space of encounter with the hidden stories of those anonymous citizens affected by the conflict.
