Meeting Fathi

This week I spent a nice day working on the exhibition project with Fathi Hassan in his studio in Fano (Italy). For a funny combination, I found Fathi through the London’s art gallery Rose Issa Projects and then discovered that he lives in (my) Italy since the 80ies. We have discussed about identity, art, globalisation, life choices, and of course about Egypt. Looking at his recent poetic small works, I clearly see his Nubian roots coming back in the shape of dream visions: delicate signs, aunts, fellucas, birds and donkeys with houses and stars on the background.
