Dance and spirituality have often intertwined.Crafted from resin, metal and bronze, Samia Baroudi's sculpture series explores the forms of the whirling dervishes.With its head bowed at a slight angle and its white frock effortlessly swirling as if propelled by some invisible breeze, it's possible the figure could be immersed in one of the "four salams," which have been described as the central part of the Sama dance.In the resin work "Mystical Insight," 39x19 cm, the completely white figure seems stands still.In the resin work "Silent Melody 2," 52x25 cm, the details of the all-white figure's traditional attire are discernable. In the metal sculpture "Dancing Bliss," 45x35 cm, the deep-red hue dominating the figure makes a striking addition to the show.Not all of works in the show portray whirling dervishes.
