SOMETHING BLUE

Galerie Tanit comes to Cromwell Place after a long year of turbulence, resistance and work.

After the 4th of August explosion in Beirut, the gallery space was ravaged. This impacted our means and facilities but not our drive. Shortly after the blast, the project “Today, I would like to be a Tree” by artist Abed Al Kadiri was initiated to help raise funds for the reconstruction of damaged homes in our city. The rehabilitation mission of the space started and a series of exhibitions was planned for a new smaller space that allowed us to continue our work, pick up our pieces and embark on a journey of beautiful collaborations and projects in Verona, Munich, Paris and now, in London.


SOMETHING BLUE
A collective exhibition with Simone Fattal, Elger Esser, Herbert Hamak, Flavie Audi, Kimiko Yoshida, Kamran Diba, Ghassan Zard and Mojé Assefjah

“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths,” Rebecca Solnit.
Many have contemplated the universe of blues, from Goethe to Virginia Wolf, from Wassily Kandisky to Georgia O’keefe, artists, poets, writers, philosophers, all explored blue’s tentacled reach into universal questions of desire and yearning, excitement and repose, sympathy and obsession, melancholy and solitude.
SOMETHING BLUE presents a palette of blues spread across Gallery 7 at Cromwell Place. From the delicate “Blau Pyramide” by Herbert Hamak to the boldly iconic “Torero Bride” by Kimiko Yoshida through the brooding “Beaugency II” by Elger Esser, hues of blue come alive in this vibrant selection of paintings, sculptures, and photographs by 8 artists from across the globe.
What emerges is a celebration of the most rare in nature and symphonic of the colors, a hue that transcends to an experience, an incantation, an incarnation of the most whimsical and exceptional heights of the imagination
