“There is nothing left”

 

 

The Alexandria Arts Forum, Egypt presents the exhibition “There’s nothing left” by Céline Condorelli and Uriel Orlow from the 8th December 2011 to the 12th January 2012.
“There is nothing left”
In “There is nothing left” different works by Céline Condorelli and Uriel Orlow are in dialogue with each other in a new multi-part installation. The exhibition explores blind spots, unexpected epilogues and disappearances in the grand narratives of history starting from Alexandria and the Suez Canal in 20th century Egypt. A series of installations engage with the constitutive movements affecting time and space: movements of people and goods, the flow of capital, political movements, removal of statues (and regimes) and migrating species. The exhibition is accompanied by an artist book, Terrains Vagues/ حركات غير مكتملة/ Persistent Images designed by Sophie Demay and Lola Halifa-Legrand; it includes interviews with Bassam El Baroni, Marianne Hultman, Jean-Marie Straub, and a text by Gilane Tawadros.

“Il n’y a plus Rien” (There’s nothing left) by Condorelli started at Manifesta 8, Murcia, and the first iteration of the overall project will be at ACAF, Alexandria, curated by Bassam El Baroni. The publication is developed in collaboration with Oslo Fine Art Society /Oslo Kunstforening, where a different version of the exhibition will be exhibited in March 2012, curated by Marianne Hultman.

The Exhibition and the Publication have been Kindly Supported by Pro Helvetia – the Swiss Arts Council, Cairo
