Perception and Illusion with Sara Naim

Perception and Illusion with Sara Naim
#Exhibitions

What elements influence our gazes and how? Nostalgia and expectations, our desires and aversions - can these influence how we see things? These are some of the questions upon which the artistic practice of the London artist of Syrian origins, Sara Naim, are based, always focused on the profound meanings of perceptions and illusions. The reflection on the concept of borders is also central to her work, not as dividing barriers but as a liminal zone of exchange and coexistence. After When Heartstrings Collapse in 2016, in which she explored the symbolism of stratification, and Building Blocks in 2019 on the dialectic of near/far, Rose Tinted is her third personal exhibition at the The Third Line Gallery of Dubai. In this new body of works mounted on the walls and floors, Sara Naim returns to using plexiglass, wood and photographic prints, with utopian images not destined to teach us how to look but, rather, to re-awaken the conscience of the gaze itself.
