Walid Siti

RE-CONSTRUCTION

Pyramids, the Ziggurat, metaphorical mountains and ladders, recognised as one of the most ancient mechanisms for climbing, continue to form essential parts of Siti’s visual vocabulary. Each of these forms has a powerful symbolic meaning, and their deconstruction in Siti’s work conveys the concept of a shift from their former position within a historical cultural tradition to a complex contemporary form. The ensuing transformation from order to disorder and vice versa defines this body of work. RE-CONSTRUCTION creates a visual metaphor for dislocation and disorientation, where new potential has been unleashed in a fragile and troubled landscape that is witnessing rapid social change and an uncertain future.
