the voice within / the voices without
Ulafa'a would like to cordially invite you to a pop-up exhibition opening at the Bahrain Fort Site Museum this Saturday! Book your calendars for 7pm, 7th September 2013 for "the voice within / the voices without" and a live music performance by Mohammed Obadli. We will also be hosting an open discussion on Monday with the artists of Ulafa'a at the same location and movie screening (Acting together on the world stage) on Tuesday the 10th of September.
The idea behind this small exhibition is to deconstruct the various compositions that make up our personal values and beliefs – what do we value, what makes them so valuable and what are we willing to do to preserve those values?
Though out the ages, myths and legends
have been telling stories of good versus evil. From religion to ethics to
philosophy – these have all studied the human contradiction of our ability to
love, bond with, and serve others and yet destruct, discriminate, and wrong-do
those same persons. Are we born with an innate moral compass or are our beliefs
imposed through our environment?
This exhibition explores the idea that
good and evil can be derived from an internal conscience as well external
influences. People are constructed both from the inside-out as well as from the
outside-in. We also look at the way in which we treat and act towards others;
the backbone of human relationships - and therefore society as a whole.
We look forward to seeing you there!
The exhibition will be open from the 7 - 14th September
