Rayyane Tabet: Encounters

Parasol unit presents Rayyane Tabet’s first major solo exhibition in the United Kingdom, with eight sculptures and installations from the past 13 years installed together for the first time.

Informed by his training in architecture and sculpture, Tabet’s installations often offer alternative perceptions of political and personal events connected with growing up in Beirut, Lebanon, where he currently lives and works. His creative process is inspired by the act of storytelling and usually begins with a chance ‘encounter’ from which a series of hidden narratives unfold.

Curated by Ziba Ardalan, Founder/Director of Parasol unit, the exhibition is accompanied by a tailored programme of educational events and a comprehensive publication.
