al markhiya gallery proudly presents a thought-provoking group exhibition, Elsewhere. This exhibition explores the artistic journeys of Syrian immigrants who now call another country home.

These talented Syrian artists invite audiences to explore their extraordinary artworks. They traverse the globe, carrying with them the rich tapestry of their home culture, almost like a second skin. Through this lens, they perceive a world of new experiences, colors, textures and people in their adopted homelands.

Yet, despite their new surroundings, these artists maintain a persistent connection to their roots. This dual existence gives birth to a distinctive artistry, where the threads of memory, experience, and family ties leave their creative minds slightly askew. The artworks presented in Elsewhere embody this in-between experience, as these artists weave tougher their native culture with the vibrant hues of their adopted homelands. As these artists seek to redefine their identities, they endeavor to harmonize their lives, returning themselves to the rhythms of existence lived in a place that is, for them, truly elsewhere.

Running until 7 December 2023
