I love using material that are seen as popular or even vulgar as the hologram papers. They are often seen in the streets of Cairo on the local vendors stalls or in decorarion for taxis and trucks. In this way the work reflects the visual sensations of walking around Cairo and the corresponding noises one can hear constantly. Shrill, harsh, sweet, bright, dark, loud, a cacophony of sounds of many colours which have no order or intention of harmony, creating a multicoloured and energetic background to ones life Cairo. It can be done with any numbers of panels and set in any order...</p><p>Faces of Future Past</p><p>A series of imagined portraits, discovered in a far way future looking back at a fantasy past.

This word became the starting point for the concept and installation BYourself combining photography, wallpainting, painting and drawings. The two photographs stand for two contrary situations of todays life. In one photograph one sees the artist the stair in a very luxurious villa climbing down. The other photograph shows in high piles or dirty dishes, pots and vessels. The two photographs are connected by the wallpainting where the draught on canvas is as well presented in the installation. The wallpainting takes up the beam auf light which penetrates the window pane located between both photographs light as an essential part of life. Light plays a role in both photographs. The light in Cairo influenced my sensitivities and work with the same intensity.</p><p>Stuttgart, Cairo, 2012 July</p></li><li><p>Yasmina Benari</p><p>In the waiting room</p><p>Photography/video installation, 2011.21 photo series of 3, 8 and 20 pictures.Color, filmstrips, photographic paper.

Edited as film stripes, the series are set in one location and focused on specific characters as they physically occupy a fixed space.</p><p>These series and their display mode aim at illustrating the general feeling of disempowerment and disillusion following January 25th and the fall of Mubaraks regime in Egypt. The wait became visible in the streets and public spaces, here portrayed as a form of resistance to the return of blind everyday life.</p><p>The installation occupies four walls, three painted in white, one in black. On the right wall the projection facing the photo series. On the left, the 10 </p><p>series of 8, facing the entrance, the 10 series of 3. Below the projection sit the 20 pictures series. The series are attached to aluminum strings tight firmly against the wall in straight lines. Small electric lamps with long black lace enable the observer to take a closer look. The experimental video projected in the room is an edit of images taken in Cairo slums. The objects are a metaphor for the millions of Egyptians living under poverty line, forgotten by the state and their fellow wealthier citizens.</p><p>People were invited to sit and experience the waiting room, thus becoming themselves part of the installation.</p></li><li><p>Anne du Boistesselin</p><p>Bey w Pacha</p><p>Peinture la colle sur toile. 25 x 25 cm</p><p>Cette srie de portraits raliss en 2004 pour pop- up en pices , reprsen-tent les photographies en noir et blanc poses en vidence sur les bureaux.
