Ghislain Amar‘s solo exhibition Amar Amar was on at Frankfurt’s Basis Projektraum which ran from March 24 until the 28, 2016.
The show is a culmination of the Rotterdam-based artists’ 3 month residency at Air Frankfurt, an installation of photography, video, and sculpture as well as a range of materials from aluminum to beer bottles, UV printing to paint.
The ground floor installation is a centre piece in connecting the work; the representation of a men’s public bathroom from a club or a bar. The artworks installed in the show are inspired by the imagery of the multicultural public spaces in the city observed by the artist during the residency. Music is also an important component where Amar explores questions of appropriation, bastardization and hybridizations of cultures.
