About

Festival days are Mythical; all other days are Historical  explores the ways that landscape is imagined, interpreted and commoditized in Egypt. The installation looks at the nuanced value of land through the lens of colonization, tourism and the history of Agrarian Land Reform. A series of speculative and indexical repositories of flora and hotels explore the possibilities of museological definitions. In what ways can the museum serve as a platform for collective commemoration as opposed to a static, formulated and objective collection of information? This collaborative project features a new installation by Marina Fathalla and is curated by Sandy Saad.

Archival objects are sourced from St Mark’s Coptic Museum, Scarborough Ontario.
