Suddenly, white words started to drift up the screen.Following the static, Raya Mazigi's looped image of the smiling face of little girl in traditional wedding attire (from her work "Ishta-Female") appeared.Organized by the Lebanese Artists Association – Painters and Sculptors, the work in this group show has been framed as "experimental," and ranges from digital art to video art to installation, performance, collage and assemblage.Further on, a giant white wall with what look like black brush strokes outlining the stylized profile of a girl demands a closer look. The wall actually is one of four that make up the open room of Rola Abu Darwish's 220x200x200 cm sculptural installation "Figment". At the center of the piece an alien-like female figure with silver eyes, green hair and a missing arm eerily floated in an all-black space. At the back of the figure's head, the artist has reconstructed a miniature model of the same room.
