The project extends ideas Makki Bacho explored in her 2016 Saleh Barakat Gallery exhibition, "Civilization," where she showed her first series of figures crafted out of scrap metal and shrapnel.Since then the artist has obsessively created hundreds of toy-sized metal figurines -- depicting tattered travelers holding a few belongings in a single suitcase. The many individual figures come together to create a winding procession, all fleeing a common threat.Most of the figurines are made out of bits of car metal, which are easily bent, painted in bright colors.This installation is the final piece in Makki Bacho's project -- a final thought to conclude her five-odd years of work on migration and scrap metal."Interminable Seasons of Migration" is showing at Agial Art Gallery, Hamra, until Aug. 31 .
