Ayyam Gallery Beirut presents 'Material Remains' a joint exhibition of paintings and installations by Ginane Makki Bacho and newcomer Fathallah Zamroud

The new distinctive exhibition, Material Remains, features a twelve-part steel architectural installation combined with modern Impressionist style canvases, displaying each Beirut-born artists unique take on the harsh reality of war and their response to its aftermath.

Zamroud's use of paint is thick and gestural, representing the suffering of Syrian refugee camps. While Makki Bacho's intriguing installation takes its inspiration from the iconic Burj El Murr — a concrete tower in downtown Beirut designed to be the art trade centre, which sadly became a stronghold for militiamen during the civil wars.

Material Remains is a beautiful juxtaposition of Zarmoud's earthy-toned and bleak canvases and Makki Bacho's mixed-steel rigid installations. The two bodies of work compliment each other, providing a unique visual experience of the desolation of war whilst illuminating an element of optimism for the future.
