This artwork opens the debate on the rapid growth of the cities of the Arabian Gulf, the nature of their mutation and the way they affect culture. Pockets within the Middle East are experiencing exponential growth and extreme transformation. Others, outside the financial radar, are experiencing social revolutions.
Whether within constantly changing scenery and infinite growth-scale or whether pushing the boundaries of inflexible systems, identities are confused. Only dreams are not.
This sculpture was donated by APEAL and the artist in the name of APEAL to the Sursock Museum. Before the re-opening of the Sursock Museum, the sculpture was on display at the Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport.
