A Duo show by Dina Danish and Jean-Baptiste Maitre

Inspired by museum and historical site visits in Europe and Egypt, Dina Danish and Jean-Baptiste Maitre started a research about displays in relation to their artefacts. The tension between the neutrality of museum display in relation to the pricelessness of its object came into focus. In their first duo exhibition 'The Admirer and The Admired', Danish and Maitre ask: What if the the object’s background was no longer neutral and if the artefact was of less value? What if the background and the artefact were like an 'admirer to an admired one'?
Mimicking a museum grid for displaying slabs of ancient scripts, a multi-layered and multi-colored (inspired by digital 3D colours) mesh structure displays climbing plants. Taking away the creative hand and replacing it with the accidental composition of the natural growth of the plants, the hierarchy between the object and its background interweave and affect each other.
Ceramic slabs quoting texts from the YouTube comment section of random videos are exhibited one above another. They shift the attention from the original video to the quote, in the same way a museum artefact would be made invisible to only leave on the wall its explanative label.
Additional to their collaborative works Maitre and Danish have each placed one of their personal works that relates to their common interest. A carpet hung on the wall and a multi-colored rope demonstrate the use of accidental and ephemeral compositions. The carpet shows a trace made by stroking with the hand against the grain of the carpet fibers. The rope randomly thrown on the floor creates a momentary color composition.

How to deal with the impossibility of experiencing an artwork or constellation of artworks to its fullest? If our understanding of it is always fragmented, based on factual information, a compressed image in a database or newspaper, lessons learnt and forgotten, can we allow our sensations and intuitions to take over our imagination?

Gypsum is thrilled to present What are you doing, object?, the season finale and the gallery's first group exhibition. For the show, Nile Sunset Annex brings together new and old works by eleven artists to look at together. Most of these artists, born between 1919 and 1992, have never exhibited in the same space and time before now.
Nile Sunset Annex is primarily interested in objects to which our meanings fail to stick. Many shapes, like experiences, cannot be properly described. Outside of categories and conceptualizations, despite our insistence, they are slippery and alien. They actually exist all around us, taking up space in the real world. When we notice them our brains are put to use chasing after them, confidently or doubtfully, but the objects speak for themselves, in the shapes beyond or between words. They confound reporters, and that is powerful. with Doa Aly, Ahmed Badry, Mounir Canaan, Dina Danish, Malak Helmy, Iman Issa, Mahmoud Khaled, Hassan Khan, Kareem Lotfy, Mona Marzouk, Sarah Samy

« My vocabulary did this to me » confessed the poet Jack Spicer, during his last moment of lucidity before passing away. This final statement inspired the artist Dina Danish to reflect on how something intangible, like words, can potentially become a menace.
Her idea of shifting this feeling from the linguistic to the visual dimension became a way to explore the potentiality of language in art last November in the setting of a performance program at South London Gallery.
