Issam Kourbaj New Installation


Born in Syria, Kourbaj has lived in Cambridge since 1989 and has been artist in residence at Christ's College for many years. This recent work is informed by current events in his native Syria. In ‘Unearthed (In Memoriam)' old hardback book covers are placed side by side covering much of the church floor, some covers are painted with white or coloured paint others have a black line painted across them, a representation of the ribbons placed over the photographs of the recently deceased in Syria.
