Al Riwaq Art Space

A PHOTOGRAPHY exhibition entitled Same Same but Different is being held at Al Riwaq Art Space, Adliya, from February 1 to 24.

It stems from a workshop led by Lebanese photographer Camille Zakharia last April. Street corners, gas pipes, sofas and wheelbarrows were the source of information for photographers.

Participating artists will include Saji Antony, Roselyne Brault, Francine Burlet, Andrea Enaux, Loredana Mantello, Asma Murad, Stephanie Ravel and Loraine Todd Stewart.

The Exhibition

Asma Murad visually records different street corners in Gufool area Block 312, an old residential district in Manama, undergoing several changes within its urban landscape.

Saji Antony has photographed the same wall of a run-down house over an extended period. It is interesting to see the house’s social as well as private landscape change over time.

Same Same But Different is an emphasis on the need to document the banal; what we take for granted may or may not exist in the near future.
