Artist Book / Paper sculpture, limited Edition of 12 Ruination: "the action or fact of ruining someone or something or of being ruined" In the context of my series on what passes and whatendures, I wanted to make a beautiful but stark sculptural object telling a story gone wrong. Here we have a small point of light piercing the darkness and beginning to expand, but this growth is undermined before it can become an encompassing circle of wholeness. As structural integrity decreases, the word hadm هدم (“ruination”) becomes visible in absentia as the circle quietly disappears. A golden chain, functioning on a different plane, continues to hold the world together – up until there is no longer a centre to hold.

I'm a British-Lebanese artist who moved from Beirut to East London about a decade ago. I'm best known for reviving archaic styles of Arabic calligraphy (the Kufi scripts) and the medieval art materials that accompany them. My work reflects my experience of the world as being alive with mystery. It invites the viewer to step into this forgotten space by holding them in wonder and stillness: in this vulnerable moment, when one is silenced by beauty and by not-knowing, remembrance can stir. To this end, the work takes on different shapes, from images of contemplation made up of unreadable words to multisensory interactive objects that tell an unspoken story.
