“Eden-like Garden” is the title of Mohamed Shoukry, Weaam El Masry, and Ahmed El Shaer’s exhibition at the Pavilion of Egypt at the 59th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in the Giardini. Official description: “The Promised Land… flowing and flooding with milk and honey… Land of extraordinary fertility… the aim, the purpose and serenity… A startling image whose core is pantheistic and sexual, as well as both sacred and profane… An eternal being of temptation and desire… A fragile, never-ending struggle… Redefining humanity… Coherent identity and a torn world… Loops of existence… Sceptic consciousness in the infinite time and space… Unpredictability… Uncertainty… In the Installation by Mohamed Shoukry, Ahmed El Shaer, and Weaam El Masry the human being is raptured in an eternal war between instinctive and volitional nature.” Eden-like Garden.
