Image Festival- Amman: Jacaranda Images Presents Hikāyāt by Tariq Dajani

As part of مهرجان الصورة – عمان Image Festival – Amman , Jacaranda Images welcomes the return of Tariq Dajani for his 5th solo exhibition at the gallery.

The exhibition consists of a series of rich hand-crafted photogravure prints combined with Arabic writings by poets Mahmoud Darwish and Samih al-Qasim, and mystics Rumi and Gibran, where the poetry adds an evocative dimension to the image.
Dajani uses old family photographs and other material to create poetic stories and ideas that reflect his personal feelings and thoughts, and his constant search for spiritual and earthly identity. The work is dark and evocative, hinting of separation, pain and loss. At the same time, the depth of human emotion displayed in the pictures provides future hope and optimism.
This will be the first exhibition of a series. All photogravure prints are limited to an edition of 3 copies only, and will be available for purchase.
An artist’s talk will take place on Wednesday 17 April at the gallery.

Open every day 11:00-20:00 at Jacaranda Gallery

Jacaranda Images: Conference of Birds by Zaina El Said & Mo Awwad

Zaina El Said and Mohammad Awwad jointly exhibit at Jacaranda Images, inspired by teachings of enlightened sages on the meaning of life.

The Persian poem ‘The Conference of Birds’ by the 12th century poet and Sufi thinker Farid Ud-Din Attar is the title of this exhibition and one of the inspirations for the works within it. The journey and the meaning of life have perplexed civilizations forever. Writers, religions, individuals have attempted to find an answer, with a handful of people understanding the question sufficiently to reach beyond it. Some call these the ‘Enlightened’ – Rumi, Hallaj, Rabia Al Adawia to name a few. Their exploration and teaching of the ‘truth’ recognises an energy and consciousness from within and that reaches beyond the limits of a two dimensional perception of life.

It is in consequence of the writings left by these sages that the idea of this exhibition came together. Using symbols and visual metaphors the works by Al Said and Awwad explore some of the journey led by the Hoopoe bird in the poem lending a painterly insight to these astounding yet timeless writings and teachings.

Showing from 9 February until 7 March at Jacaranda Images

11:00 to 20:00 Daily

Exhibition opening February 9 18:00
