Art (similarly to beauty) is a very subjective category.
Although, art surrounds us, most of us find it in different places. The ’Merging of Opposites’ exhibition at Várkert Bazár (from the 15th to the 31th October) is forcing the viewers to find art through the lenses of talented kuwaiti photographers. The artists are: Abdulaziz Al Shemali, Ali Al Zaidi, Majed Al Za'abi, Sara Al Sayegh and Yousef Al Qallaf.
The curator of the exhibition is Nawar N. Al-Kazemi, and the aim is to show how different artists interpret the idea of art. Al Shemali finds it in the smallest details of nature, Al Zaidi in the difference of cultures, Al Zaabi in the animal world, Al Sayegh in the shapes of water and sand, and Al Qallaf in reflections of light. Although, the idea of art may not neccessarily be connected to beauty, we can find it in our common ideas based on art.
