Navine G. Khan-Dossos Imagine A Palm Tree
Where: Benaki museum,
When: Apr 14, 2016 - Sep 25, 2016
Since arriving in
in September 2015, Navine G. Khan-Dossos has heard a curious story, told and retold in different ways. It is about the removal of the palm trees from the urban landscape of Athens Athens as a way of visually “re-orientating” the city towards Europe rather than the ‘Orient’.
Imagine a Palm Tree is a performance of painting open for visitors of the Benaki Museum of Islamic Art to watch and interact with. This performance will lead to the creation of a floor-to-ceiling mural on the top floor of the museum, that is scheduled to open in April 2016, and to a series of relevant events throughout the spring and summer.
