AMACI : Qatar National Library : Francesca Pompei : Sharada


AMACI presents at the Qatar National Library a solo exhibition by Francesca Pompei, Sharada. She sent us the following text.

When we encounter a piece of architecture, the experience begins before we enter the space, thanks to a visual context which incorporate a sort of animated geometry and a tenuous relationship between light and dark, so that the ingredients can be seen in a moving way, in a dynamic and evocative energy.

This has been my photographic approach to Doha.

The capital of Qatar is the first Arab metropolis chosen to host the Football World Cup in 2022. Awaiting herds of tourists from all over the world, it is transforming its urban horizon with works by prestigious architects such as Jean Nouvel, Rem Koolhaas, Arata Isozaki and Ieoh Ming Pei.

What is most amazing is the grandeur of these hypermodern sites which stand out from a silent and solitary perspective, in a space “in between” suspended in the known city and the other side.

An enigmatic landscape, which evoking a metaphysical dimension, invites to a journey through a fairy fascination like The Thousand and One Nights.
