Collaboration with Karim el Hayawan and Nehal Leheta: Tales of Egyptian treasure
Antiques are a physical representation of history, of stories, experiences and sentiments that have outlived what people could not.
This exhibition will feature 8 hotspots consisting of a curation of items that tell a story, the focal point of each is an antique safe, creating a feeling of mystery and secrecy. The visitor gets immersed in their nostalgia by trying to piece together the mystery as they walk through.
