The Lebanese-born artist Zena Assi draws from her cultural experiences the idea that people re-evaluate their cultural identity when they are faced with a new one and decide what to embrace and what to leave behind.
The series ‘Put it in a Tin’ encapsulates this internal conflict with large canvases of mixed media bouquets.
Zena Assi’s work has already been recognized internationally and has featured in international auction houses, including the famous Sotheby’s of London. Her exhibition in Dubai will coincide with her participation in the 57th Venice Biennale.
