Al-Tiba9 Algiers 2019 / STATEMENT
Transgression allows the liberation of the creative energies whose agent is the human. This power of act has been theorized by several thinkers of the Eastern and Western world. This logic of action is introduced only by the understanding ot notion of the different levels of reality. It is a logic of complexity, freedom and transgression, which intermediates the image between here and there, between body and soul, between visible and invisible.
The greatest Sufis theorists explain that we must see and understand the contradictions and tensions contained in names. It is necessary that the word joins the thing and to perceive the different levels of reality which compose it. It would be a transgression to overcome the limit of the present, to go beyond appearances, to access the hidden reality, the light of the intellect. These levels are the degrees of hierarchy of the being. According to the mystic sufi poet, Rumi, the love for god can be reached by seeing creation as god’s divine power and a divine expression. The universe speaks to us by whisperers and signs, therefore, one needs to observe and think about it to reach the “Ishq عشق” (love) of god. The further we move away from the center, from the faith, the more contradictions and paradox emerge. "We are not going East and West, but rather we are constantly traveling to the Sun" Rumi says.
And in the verse: "And to Allah belongs the east and the west. So wherever you [might] turn, there is the Face of Allah. Indeed, Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.” (115) Al-Baqarah, Qoran.
This seventh edition of Al-Tiba9 focuses on light as a manifestation of energy, a principle that makes it possible to reach the phenomenological world, an element of knowledge by getting closer to the center and reach these levels of reality. This transgressive show emerges between lights and shadows, from here and there, reaching for profound hope but staying rooted in reality. These physical, metaphysical and spiritual oxymorons are meeting again this year in the Museum of Modern Art of Algiers (MAMA) featuring internationally established and emerging artists from around the globe.
