The work of Damascus-born Lebanese artist Simone Fattal, these forms comprise one side of the present exhibition at Mar Mikhael's Galerie Tanit.An exhibition of clay objects impressed with script is immediately evocative of the clay tablets used as written media in ancient Mesopotamia, a resonance reformed through the use of spherical shapes.Fattal's porcelain works are smaller in size and lighter than the clay and stone pieces.All of Fattal's sculptures betray a dual nature, at once delicate and imposing. As onlookers moves from the odd warrior-like figures in the main gallery to the secondary gallery, they find at the center of the space "Doors," peculiar-looking, non-functional, pieces that re-conceptualize the notion of doors as conventionally understood. Fattal does not force the viewer into specific interpretations of her work.Simone Fattal's "Gres et Porcelaines" are on show at Mar Mikhael's Galerie Tanit until Sept. 4 .
