Ammar al-Beik at Gallery Crone
9 September - 15 October 2016 | Vienna
Ammar al-Beik is featured in the collective exhibition Jugendzimmer (Teen Bedroom), which is on view from 9 September until 15 October at the Vienna outpost of Gallery Crone. Teen Bedroom is organised by guest curator Dirk Schönberger, who also serves as the creative director of Adidas. The exhibition highlights the works of international artists who capture the different facets that are essential to the private sanctuaries of young adults. Across a variety of media, the featured artists identify the ‘found objects, symbols…[and] many daily homages to things that seem or really are important to coalesce to form the “I”.’
Al-Beik is represented with La Dolce Siria (2015) a short film that describes the loss of innocence among children as a result of the catastrophic Syrian war. La Dolce Siria was recently shown as part of al-Beik’s Syria Trilogy at the Danish Film Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark. The film was also included in the exhibition Between the Worlds at Schloss Roskow, Germany during the summer.
