amira behbehani’s ‘the cave in realizatioin’
I’m kicking myself for not going to the exhibition in which this piece by Kuwaiti artist Amira Behbehani was displayed. I don’t know, sometimes I just don’t pay enough attention to what’s going on around me. Because when I was flipping through the latest issue of B Journal and exclaimed how I couldn’t believe I missed this show, my lunch companion took great satisfaction in reminding me that he had told me about it. Such a shame. I would have liked to have seen this ‘live’. I’ve always liked Amira’s ink lines and I love the way the cold, steel structure compliments her drawings here. Plus there appears to be what looks like a camera lens. It’s a curious piece, one I would have liked to play with.
