Mottahedan Projects presents its new exhibition “The Awakening” by the artists Peter Halley and Pietro Roccasalva.
From the poem – Mu’allaqat of Zuhair, translated by RA Nicholson:
“I am weary of life’s burden: well a man may weary be. After eighty years, and this much now is manifest to me: Death is like a night-blind camel stumbling on: the smitten die, And the others wax in age and weakness whom he goeth by”.
- Pietro Roccaslava 2015, Z (detail)
