DOWNLOAD THE EXHIBITION BOOKLET

Life Between Damascus and London will showcase a collection of over 15 years of art works created by Faiz Sara. Starting out with a few pieces made while he was imprisoned in Syria, to challenge the persecution and oppression he faced, the collection grew beyond his time in prison, and his journey in seeking a safer place in London, like many Syrians. The diverse range of works are all made of recycled consumable materials, including wood, date and olive stones, coffee and tea residues, metal cans and copper strips. This exhibition will be interpreted in English and in Arabic.

IN-PERSON: at Grand Junction, Undercroft (basement level)

1st – 11th February 2023, Monday – Saturday (closed Sundays), 10am -4pm

Faiz Sara is a Syrian writer, journalist, and dissident, born in 1950. He has written over twenty books on Syrian and Arab affairs. He contributed to the establishment of many opposition formations, assumed leadership responsibilities in them, and was arrested several times because of his activism.

Creative handicrafts represent one of his hobbies that have been going on for four decades, in which he produced hundreds of works, which will be displayed for the first time in London.
