Journeys from an Absent Present to a Lost Past

Mohamad Hafez
Fri 15 Apr - Sun 29 May 2022

Architect and artist Mohamad Hafez, creates miniature three-dimensional scenes that architecturally represent the urban fabric of the Middle East and serve as a backdrop for his political and social expression.

The twelve works exhibited at Fabrica are streetscapes, meticulously fashioned using found objects, paint, and scrap metal. They draw on the artists’ passion for street art and activism, and seek to raise global awareness about the ongoing Syrian conflict. Though tiny in scale, these extraordinary works capture the magnitude of the devastation and poignantly expose the fragility of human life.
