Urban Photography Solo Exhibition
followed by a live concert by The Last Postman, a Syrian Indie/Dream-Pop band, and Anas Maghrebi, a Syrian musician and producer based in Berlin.
In collaboration between MENA Art Gallery, OYOUN Cultural space and AL Berlin, we present “Tales of a Gully”, a fascinating interplay between chaos and artistry takes center stage.
"Tales of a Gully" is a photography exhibition by Antoine Antabi that dares to rede-fine our perception of the everyday through a lens that hovers above the ordinary streets. With drone shots capturing gullies and their intricate patterns, in his photos Antoine delves deep into the philosophy of holes, randomness, and the remarkable likeness of the gully's essence projected onto the world around us.
In our bustling cities, gullies are often relegated to the unnoticed, perceived as mere voids in the landscape, inconsequential interruptions in our daily commutes. These gullies are not just gaps in the asphalt, but portals to the unseen, windows into the hidden tapestry of the underground. They represent the convergence of form and function, where necessity gives birth to design, and the randomness of urban life weaves its intricate patterns.
In these aerial views, we invite you to contemplate the serendipity and order that coexist in the city's labyrinthine streets. The randomness of human activity, the haphazardness of construction, and the unpredictability of nature converge to form a chaotic symphony that manifests in these gullies. Each crack and crevice tells a story, a narrative etched by time and circumstance, inviting us to question the role of chance in our lives.
Ticket: Free admission!

Whether this moment is happening in the geographic region itself or in its various diasporas. Ambitiously, we hope to add to the numerous efforts of creating a politically free moment for the region, for Berlin, Europe and the entire world, through this cultural engagement junction between Berlin and the Region as the departure point we embark from to the universe.
