Imane Ibrahim


What happened in the last year?! is a window into a work in progress, the product of a year of contemplation, planning, progress and retreat. The installation features different media such as recorded clips, sketches and diagrams. Whether the media was complete or not, the artist used them in a discussion about a fundamental interest in the relationship of abstract mathematics to visual art. The presented materials look at significant events in human history and put them into dialogue with perceptions and ideas about teaching and learning in art in Egypt.

ماذا حدث في العام الماضي؟!” هو نافذة على عمل في طور التطوير، نتاج فترة من التأمل والتخطيط والتقدم والتراجع خلال عام كامل. يقدم العمل مواد مختلفة مثل مقاطع مسجلة واسكتشات ورسوم توضيحية مكتملة وغير مكتملة، تم استخدمها في مناقشة اهتمام أساسي عن علاقة علم الرياضيات المجرد بالفن البصري. تنظر المواد المقدمة إلى أحداث هامة في التاريخ الإنساني وتضعها في محاورة مع تصورات وأفكار عن التعليم والتعلم في الفن في مصر.
