Third Space Gallery presents Reema: "All Roads Lead to Home" opening reception
Reema’s first solo exhibition focuses on themes of home and memory across multiple platforms. "All Roads Lead To Home" will include photography, paintings, prose, and poetry. Reema is the artist, designer, curator and publisher of this work.
The project was conceived during an art residency in Paris, France and Marfa, Texas. There, memories of Reema’s home country were rediscovered in unexpected, sometimes heart-wrenching ways. All Roads Lead To Home documents those discoveries and reflections. The book is a non-linear narrative designed to tell the artist’s circuitous memories of home. When you flip through the chapters, you see a series of actions, causes, and effects that, together, form an ongoing narrative. The exhibition is a deconstruction of the book using time, scale, and placement.
"All Roads Lead To Home" dives into issues of displacement, intersectionality, and mental health, all written in non-gendered language. Like the author, the book sits on the crossroads of culture and race, of written and visual language, of inclusion and exclusion. This story is one of finding place in displacement, of being strong but also falling apart, of finding humanity within devastation.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until April 29.
