"Lemonade Everything Was So Infinite," an exhibition of 30 new works by Lebanese artist Hiba Kalache, assembles works emerging from her examination of sacral depictions of paradise.In preparing the exhibition, Kalache worked closely with curator Natasha Gasparian.The works in the first were executed when Kalache was working directly from religious texts.Stylistically, the pieces in Kalache's second series become less constrained, more free-flowing, their motifs less fixed.During an intense six months of stimulation, Kalache explained, she moved away from the direct transposition of scripture to canvas and instead began exploring the secular works of Helene Cixous.In particular, Kalache was interested in Cixous' writings on Clarice Lispector's book "Agua Viva," which echoed the artist's conflict with the word and the image. Comprising 99 paper drawings, the piece takes motifs from across the entire exhibition to create a unified work.
