With the poetic and mysterious title “Only stones, bronze and the sky shall outlive all the rest” Basim Magdy opens his second solo exhibition at hunt kastner, presenting a film, an installation and several photographic works. Basim Magdy uses texts, images and sounds to construct fictional places, settings and scenarios, which interrogate, with scepticism, our impressions of utopia and collective identity. Each image, a fragment of reality, is subjected to different chemical processes creating different degrees of loss. The picture is immersed in an oneiric light as our memory fails us with the passing of time and layering of experience.
