Hiba Kalache: into the language of maps

Hiba Kalache

March 28, 2016 - December 28, 2016

This month’s Sunday workshop will be led by visual artist Hiba Kalache, whose work is exhibited on the ground floor in the context of exposure 2014.

The two-hour family workshop will revolve around maps and ways to draw and paint new locations. Humans have, since the beginning of times, the tendency and need to make sense of themselves and the world at large, as well as to orient their discoveries. They do this by drawing maps. A map can be seen as a method for exploring and navigating spaces of memory and imagination. They reaffirm a constant search for meaning.

The question that will be raised is, how can we use real and imaginary maps to satisfy our curiosity and our desire to put order into a specific (chaotic or not) space? In this workshop we will use the language of maps, both emotional and physical ones, to express, draw and paint new mapped out locations.
