"Towards the Sublime," curated by Galerie Tanit's Naila Kettaneh-Kunigk and Mayssa Abou Rahal, brings together the diverse production of 17 local and international artists. Some artistic works will be new to viewers. Nabil Nahas' painting has a branching cedar tree as its central form, while brushes of gold add a daub of royalty and referring back to art history, Abou Rahal noted.Nahas' work also alludes to the power of nature, as does work by Daniele Genadry and Abed Al Kadiri.Syrian artist Fadi Yazigi's "Untitled," 2013, is an art installation of 20 tiny birds' legs, perched without bodies in individual plexiglass compartments.Abou Rahal noted the conceptual, physical, artistic contrasts that the small piece offers.German-based South Korean artist Bongchull Shin's works are the embodiment of transparency and light. The installation of neat, colored, angular glass pieces shares a geometric element with Yazigi's work, but the piece is Zen in its installation and disarming in its simplicity. Abou Rahal said that after hours, the light hits the work at a particular angle and the colors reflect across the gallery walls.
