The Bravery of Being Out of Range

Last week I visited Sultan Gallery's latest exhibition titled The Bravery of Being Out of Range II organized in collaboration with Athr Gallery, one of the first contemporary art galleries in Saudi Arabia dedicated for the Saudi and Arab artists. The exhibition builds on the success of its first show that was held at Athr in May 2011, and it highlights globalization and how it can be equally limiting and liberating. One of the pieces that caught my attention and which I fond to be funny were these bowling pins covered with textile scarves by artist Yara El Shirbini. If you're interested to visit the exhibition, it's on till 2nd February 2012.

Inspired by Louis Vuitton's monogram and iconic Burberry check print headgear/turban by artist Pouran Jinchi.
