Between Floating Worlds

Using techniques of live drawing and animation, Syrian artist Kevork Mourad presents ink drawings that reflect on the struggles of migration, whether it is forced or voluntary, and the burden of remembrance for those moving to other lands. His process involves the transfer of very fine drawings from acetate to textile, which he proceeds to cut out and layer to create three-dimensional works that bear reference to Sumerian, Babylonian and Armenian designs.
