In a guiltless search for happiness, “Chronicle”, a collective exhibition of three emerging artists from Lebanon, Paula Chahine, Nayla Kai Saroufim and Marcel Rached, curated by Singapore’s Sana Gallery, tells a beautiful story about dialogues;

 Between the Middle East and the rest of the world;

 Men and women;

People and the sea;

 Children and parents;

 Machines and us;

 “Chronicle” is a commentary on our day and age of silent, loud, spiritual, material, overt, covert, direct and indirect connectedness and communication. 

 The three artists use different techniques, ranging from pop art combined with mixed media, acrylic on canvas and photography.  Their fresh approaches combine lush layers of paint, ink, airbrush, watercolors, glow in the dark paint, LED lights and photography. 

For two whole months art lovers in Singapore will be able to experience different dialogues at an exhibition aptly named “Chronicle”; an intriguing dialogue between the Middle East and the rest of the world.

Yesterday March 24, 2015 a private viewing of the ‘Silene’ Cuff by Zaha Hadid in collaboration with AWMouzannar was held at Qirdala, a jewelry shop in Tilal Complex, Shwaikh, Kuwait. The event showcased the cuff along with some of the finest pieces designed by Alia & Dori Mouzannar.

The cuff is made of 12 pieces and is encrusted with 1048 diamonds. The prototype shown is made of brushed white gold but can be ordered in either pink or yellow gold. The price was not disclosed, but what I got to know is that only 12 pieces will be made, 2 have already been sold.

“Silene expresses the fluidity and complexity of natural forms,” said Hadid. “An intricate web gently envelops the pristine white gold cuff resulting in a delicate piece that explores the evolution of organic geometries and patterning.”
