Anna Boghiguian

Sharjah Art Foundation

16 Mar 201816 Jun 2018

This solo show dedicated to Anna Boghiguian is a retrospective encompassing four decades of the artist’s work and presenting six large bodies of Boghiguian’s work: her multimedia installations “The Salt Traders” (2015), “A Play to Play” (2013) (based on the works of the poet Tagore) and “Unfinished Symphony” (2011–2012), the drawing series “Cavafy” (1995–2017), a large selection of illustrated notebooks (1981–present) and a recreation of the artist’s studio in Cairo. Characterised by bold colours and saturated compositions, Boghiguian’s paintings and sculptures combine materials like wax, wood and paint with cut-outs and collage. Her work also comprises photography, text, sound and site-specific installations that derive from her observations of social conflicts.
