Min Ilā

Min Ilā, meaning “from…to”, references the journeys of materials: min (from) the natural ilā (to) composite states, min (from) raw material ilā (to) crafted form.


Material journeys, “min…ila” offer an experience of the ever-changing nature of crafts and crafted materials of Bilād Al- Shām. The journey “min…ila” is presented in the natural forms on display, the exhibited techniques of transformation, the plasticity or rigidity of new practices, and the materiality of their construction, disfiguration and reconfiguration. The exhibition showcases the changing states and mediums of materials through the multiple and dynamic crafting methods applied; from manual, virtual and computation alteration to digital fabrication.
