Voyage Voyage || 2017
Voyage Voyage is the title of the first solo exhibition by Ibi Ibrahim in Bahrain, showcasing an assemblage of conceptual paintings, video, and photographs. The title of the exhibition is a reference to what the artist calls a journey to explore memory and identity through three countries the artist visited and explored. Yemen, Lebanon and most recently Bahrain.
In Bahrain, the artist engaged with locals and residents from the small gulf island on memory and identity topics. The images displayed were taken inside a +30 year old Bahraini fast-food chain called JASMI'S.
