The Wall (2012)

Moataz Nasr

The video installation The Wall develops the concepts of confinement, fear, and uncertainty – a reflection of the state that Egypt finds itself in at the moment.

“The artist straightaway places us in a clear opposition between darkness and light, freedom and imprisonment, joy and sorrow. Contrasting, contradictory concepts that, through their opposition, create the tension that is at the root of the work.” – S. Njami, artslant.com, worldwide.
