PARTICIPATION TO THE 55th INTERNATIONAL ART EXHIBITION -LA BIENNALE DI VENEZIA THE NATIONAL PAVILION OF THE MALDIVES
DISAPPEARANCE AS WORK IN PROGRESS –APPROACHES TO ECOLOGICAL ROMANTICISM
FEATURED ARTIST: WAEL DARWESH
PROJECT TITLE: THE DISAPPEARANCE

"THE DISAPPEARANCE" by WAEL DARWESH uses large fields of flat solid color and mixed media to capture a fleeting moment in our pulsating memory and its influence on the soul. This visual experience attempts to explore the consequences on the collective memory and psyche of experiencing long periods of continuous change, inconsistencies, anticipation and suppressed actions. The absence of transparency, the inability to predict the next moment and the emergence of various predictions has led to many changes around us and inside us.
At the end all are human emotions and experiences. These variables have created a great load on our memory and left alone the mental abilities to absorb or explain these changes.

This visual sonata of solid planes of form and color blended with gold leaf and collage, using abstract figures that seem to dramatically perform roles in a theatrical background.
It is a study of the influence of this certain incidence on the memory, more like the scratches on the walls of the soul.                                   
Working from life, photography and from imagination Wael Darwesh’s work is ever evolving, maturing and inviting. 
The exhibition held at The national Pavilion of the Maldives on 29th May 2013 at 6.30-9.00 pm will be Wael Darwesh r’s first time exhibition in La Bienniale di Venezia, showing 3 larges size works.
