Lamella at Dar al-Funoon, January 2009

Finally some images from the Lamella exhibition at the Dar Al-Funoon Gallery in Kuwait, which is located in a beautiful traditional courtyard house a stonesthrow away from the sea.

The entrance and courtyard of the gallery

The gallery itself wraps around the central courtyard, in an extended 'U' shape, allowing natural light to enter the spaces, forming a light, but not too bright, sheltered and beautiful space in the middle, which functions perfectly as an area for various more intimate reception and gatherings. The gallery spaces themselves have high wood planked ceilings, which are 'exhibition' neutral, whilst still retaining the character (the nooks & crannies) of the original building.

As mentioned, the work was very well received, and we would like to extend our thanks to Ms. Lucy Topalian, the director and curator of the gallery, for providing us with the opportunity to exhibit our work, particularly considering how different it is, both in format and concept, from the themes and types of work usually exhibited at the gallery. We found it all very exciting and engaging...

Thank you also to all, both students and staff from KU as well as all other worthy visitors. We are truly chuffed you made the time and effort to come by...
