Omar Ba’s paintings represent political and social motifs that are open to multiple interpretations. His artistic vocabulary raises historical and timeless questions while formulating a wholly contemporary artistic message. Ba’s iconography features personal metaphors, ancestral references and hybrid figures. In his work, he seeks to express his subconscious and symbolic interpretation of the real.
Omar Ba has exhibited work at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto; Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris; and Louvre Abu Dhabi, among others.
Annabel Daou’s work takes place at the intersection of writing, speech, and non-verbal modes of communication. Her paper works, videos, sound pieces, and performances deal with yearnings and anxieties that are both personal and political. Her process involves mining the expressive possibilities of ordinary words and phrases in order to reveal unexpected intimacies between individual and collective experience. Frequently, the work evokes moments of rupture, chaos, and misunderstanding, but always with the tenuous possibility of repair.
Annabel Daou has exhibited work at National Museum of Beirut; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; and Park Avenue Armory, New York, among others.
