Al Riwaq Art Space proudly announces the first solo exhibition of Iraqi artist Sinan Hussein in Bahrain. Hussein explores the cyclical nature of life in his solo exhibition ‘Hîjj’.

Hîjj is a word with a range of meanings in the Arabic language. It can indicate a passion of feeling as strong as rage, without the negative context. The word Hîjj can also be traced to a the Sufi metaphysical concept of “Hîjj”, a word with its roots in Persia: literally it translates as ‘nothing’ but its meaning is far deeper that this: that one can encompass everything and nothing, transience and immanence, at once.

Elements and textures from his Iraqi childhood and his world travels collide into a tragi-comic surrealist landscape, realized through the medium of oil paintings. The observer is presented with a world concealing its underlying tensions, the force of which have split it in two: partnerships are in turmoil, as the butting horns of the ram suggest warring lovers as well as the war between body and soul, society and the individual. There is a celebration of life and death, the grotesque and the beautiful, moving in the circular rhythm of life that see lovers turn into enemies, the wise man turn into a fool and back again, blurring the everyday tensions of life into the spiritual disquiet of our contemporary society.

Opening Date: Tuesday 19th January 2016, 7:00pm
