Sadik Kwaish Alfraji at Red Star Line Museum
27 April - 28 August 2016
Sadik Kwaish Alfraji’s internationally renowned show, Ali’s Boat, is on view at the Red Star Line Museum in Antwerp, Belgium until 28 August. Inspired by a letter he received from his young nephew in Baghdad, Alfraji invokes a symbolic ‘boat’ to explore a universal image that allows him to escape reality through memory and imagination.
The exhibition is the first of a two-part project that the museum is presenting titled A Boat and an Abode. Both exhibitions are curated by Niels Van Tomme. The second installment will take place in 2017 with a Roza El-Hassan exhibition.
