Amal KENAWI (Egyptien), Empty sky, vidéo, 2006
I use drawings as a narrative language of expression. Empty Skies is a video animation inspired by the following poem: “I am walking alone without feats, as river water does./ Half crazy, I am. Is it not nearly enough for you?/ This madness rises out of my love and weeping/ I became a source not a result/ I am a lion and at the same time a gazelle./ Now, can you see my fragrant light burning me?” Empty Skies was commissioned by the Modern Art Museum, Tokyo and the Modern Art Museum, Kyoto for an exhibition entitled Drawing Emotion.
