Egyptian artists showcase their work on paper

12 Egyptian artists are taking part in exhibition showcasing work on cheapest and most fragile artistic medium — paper, Amira Sayed Ahmed writes from Al Monitor. The exhibition at the Gypsum Gallery in Cairo, named Paper Trail, was put together by the curators “with the aim of breaking the general perception that works of art on paper were not complete artworks on their own, but sketches or drafts.” One piece on display is Islam Zaher’s Investigations of a Dog, which refers to Franz Kafka’s 1922 story of the same title where many existentialist questions are posed through the canine.
