27 November-17 December 2010. This exhibition brings together a series of colourful paintings by the Egyptian artist Samir Fouad entitled Flesh.

Fouad portrays the anxiety of modern man through the contradictory meanings of the word flesh, which are separated by a very fine line that reflects the struggles inside every individual and deal with devouring, sacrifice, love, seduction and sexuality.

Fouad likes to depict the two elements of movement and time in most of his works and also puts all his figures in relation to place.
