Mohamad Hafez: “A safe haven for the soul”

Episode 36

Play episode

Syrian-born architect and artist, Mohamad Hafez, takes us on a walk through the stree-tscenes of his miniature dioramas that transport the eye back to an imagined Damascus, before and after the Syrian war. We explore the visual conversation with homesickness and exile in a discussion of his work.

Mohamad Hafez’s new exhibition, “Journeys from an Absent Present to a Lost Past”, is on show now at the Fabrica gallery as part of the Brighton arts festival (Wednesday-Sunday 12-6pm every day until 29th May 2022).

You can find more images of the work and previous exhibitions at the official website for Mohamad Hafez.
