The mesmerising multimedia works of Syrian/Danish artist Zhivago Duncan are now in Dubai. Located exclusively at the Meem Gallery the exhibition, Never But Always is a collective of edgy statements screenprinted on delicate fabric surfaces. Based in Berlin, Duncan works with various artistic media to create a wide variety of works from sculptures and paintings to installations and performances.


In Never But Always, Duncan explores culture, from both a traditional and contemporary point of view, with ideologies as juxtaposed as Islamic geometry to Spiderman. Using gold and linen, he expertly applies the silkscreen effect, resulting in a body of work that is not only unique but also timeless. With symmetry very much in focus, Duncan tells his story through subjects including birds, ghouls and machinery.

We Once Were

To celebrate the launch of Zhivago Duncan's exhibition the art gallery will hold a private preview with the artist on March 13 at 5pm. Never But Always runs from March 13 — May 10 at Meem Gallery, Al Quoz.
