Over the past few years Hazem Harb has developed a multifaceted practice, where he has worked with painting, video, drawing, sculpture and installation. His work pivots around examining and laying bare structures and apparatuses of power and hierarchies. Hazem has been preoccupied lately with questions around architecture and destruction: how and when does architecture cease to be an oppressive apparatus? How do certain architectural styles museumize a people? While other styles shelter others? How can sculpture counter architecture? How can sculpture be non-monumental? questions that are posed throughout the exhibition to initiate a discussion.
