ARTISSIMA

HODA TAWAKOL AND RAED YASSIN

OVAL Lingotto Fiere, Turin
Preview: 4 November | 5 - 7 November, 2021


 

As part of our participation in the DIALOGUE section of Artissima 2021, we have orchestrated a dialogue of works by Raed Yassin and Hoda Tawakol.

Channeling the uncanny, both artists evoke absence and latency, surrender and control. Vanished families in flea-market-sourced snapshots peer out from behind monochrome paint shrouds in Yassin’s photographic works. Their stiff, static poses contrast with Tawakol’s teeming Jungle works—sites of eerie, ambivalent entanglements—while in her Nude with Eyes watercolours, a female body covered with eyes raises questions the gaze, the potency of seeing/being seen.
