Sfeir-Semler Gallery | The Shortest Distance Between Two Points | An exhibition by Rayyane Tabet

The Shortest Distance Between Two Points is a line. A line is a construction of distance - in space, in time, in vision. It gives definition to form and position through connection and separation. The Trans-Arabian Pipe Line Company was established in 1946 as a joint venture between Caltex, Esso, and Mobil. TAPLine was formed to build and operate a 1213 kilometer long 78 centimeter wide steel tube to transport oil through land. With this endeavor the company described three intersecting lines - an arc of history, geography, and geometry.

Agial Art Gallery | Mantek Al Tayr | Landscape, Vision – Group of works 2007-2013

21 May - 22 June 2013 Elsewhere & around | Exhibition

Her recent paintings belong to her "Landscapes" series, a group of work on paper exploring the notion of landscape as a dimension, rather than a pictorial subject. Here, the landscape is treated as an expanded state of consciousness, often beyond or beneath language. It can be perceived as a readjustment of the sensorial experience, shifted from any discursive thought, hence "recognized" as an archetype of sorts, a primal recognition sensation.
