Burn What Needs To Be Burned
December 1, 2018 > January 19, 2019
z2o Sara Zanin Gallery is pleased to host from December 1st to January 19th Burn What Needs To Be Burned, artist Ibrahim Ahmed’s debut exhibition at the gallery. Displaying the result of a two-year long self-exploration and internalised dialogue, the artist takes a view on the urgent debate about masculinity and its implications, at a time when this has come into focus as an issue. The exhibition shows his personal process of understanding and dismantling of manliness as a construct, as it is perceived and performed across different geographical and cultural collective imaginations.
The show comprises around fifty photos and photo-collages in which the artist exposes and manipulates his own body as a battleground protagonist.
