Pullman Hotel Dubai showcases shadow art
Dubai, August 24, 2014
Pullman Dubai Deira City Centre Hotel has collaborated with Art Hub Abu Dhabi to welcome Jordanian artists Bassam Al Selawi and Maysoon Masalha in showcasing their ‘Shadow Art’ project.
Shadow art is created by the projection of a spotlight on a three-dimensional sculpture. Through modern sculpture techniques, the pieces create shadows of singular figures, reflecting the meaning of the phrase or word in the sculpture. The combination of the shadow figure and the sculpture create a visual narrative illustrating each other in a four dimensional way, a statement said.
The shadow art show, which opened on August 18, will run till September 15 at the hotel lobby.
“We are proud to be part of Dubai’s art movement. The shadow art exhibition is yet another depiction of how far Pullman Dubai Deira City Centre has come with the ‘Resident Artist’ program,” said Laurent Chaudet, the general manager of Pullman Dubai Deira City Centre.
“We are even taking this specific project a step further, for the first time since the first resident artist, Pullman will be supporting the sales of the pieces, where a percentage of the sale will be donated to the Majid Al-Futtaim charity foundation,” he said. – TradeArabia News Service
