The exhibition features early and recent works by the artist that explore zones of turbulence, the motions at the core and the spread out effects. Happening in Beirut, this show occurs in a country surrounded by endless conflicts and repressions and that is populated by millions of refugees.
The show features photographs taken by Francis Alÿs in the streets of Beirut in 2015 at the occasion of a sand storm. It reflects on the notion of turbulence, from instability to total chaos, from meteorological phenomena to geopolitical manifestations, from a simple knot in the hair to an ascending spiral.
