January 24, 2018 till January 25, 2018
From 6:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Tart, Gotthardstrasse 54, 8002 Zürich, CH
Pro Helvetia Cairo artist in residence, Ahmed Mohsen Mansour, currently in residence at Rote Fabrik, Zürich, is holding his first exhibition in Zürich as part of the 24hrs Project, a none profit platform curated by Anne-Laure Franchette and hosted by TART Contemporary Art Space.
Mansour has participated in several exhibitions and workshops within the fields of video, photography and animation in Egypt, USA, UK, Italy, Germany, France, Slovakia, Spain, Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
Mansour’s work is based on memories of events he has been involved in. Fascinated by the endless oscillation of the human condition, he looks at what can start as a triumph and turns into a manifesto of defeat, leaving a sense of what could have been. He distorts those phenomenons through diligent personal practice, leaving the viewer with a testament from the edges of his world.

The 24hrs project:
The 24 hours Project is an experimental platform, which takes place between exhibitions at TART Zürich. What happens during the deconstruction and reconstruction phases? The 24 hours Project intends to show that during the ” idle phase ” various settings can take place within a gallery. Artists are invited to take over the space for 24 hours to meet, share, process, participate, perform, showcase, experiment.
