CAN A SINGLE LETTER WITHOUT A TEXT BE A MEANS OF EXPRESSION?
The exhibition is the first solo show dedicated to Jassim Meraj (Kuwait, 1982) in his own Country.
Can a single letter without a text be a means of expression? celebrates calligraphy, one of the artforms that spread across the Arab world through manuscripts and books.
Jassim Meraj's cultural background and his personality all come together to draw the portrait of an eclectic artist who is constantly pushing the boundaries of calligraphy through paintings, drawings, and sculptures.
With reference to the letter Haa, Meraj’s question embodied in the title of the exhibition explores how letters in the hand of calligraphers are means to reveal their unique vision of the world.
