Syncretic Exhibit Work - Continued...

A few more examples of pieces being displayed at the La fontaine Centre of Contemporary Arts.

The gallery spaces themselves are quite hermetic and almost cave-like, with the central gallery space made up of a set of textured niches within which the work is displayed.



The work itself also benefitted from the more muted colour scheme of the spaces...



Another set of projects being displayed are the Parametric Mashrabiyas, are a take on the traditional privacy screen (an oriel like structure) still occasionally found in many Middle-Eastern cities. Here this idea is customized, by assembling a set of matching laser-cut canvas banners, to a particular condition and location, i.e. the pattern of the mashrabiya has been made to allow for a particular set of views or to allow for specific lighting conditions in the space in which it is used in. The patterns through which these aims are achieved can be varied. Below are some examples.

The Archipelago Mashrabiya...
