Rania Ezzat - Yellow Ball
Opening event: Monday 8th of March 2010, from 20:00 to 23:00
Carbon 12 proudly presents the installation "Yellow Ball" by Rania Ezzat. Like Khepri, the scarab beetle god, renewed the sun every day to carry it through the other world after sunset, Ezzat's installation deals with the signs of eternal renewal and re-emergence of life, a reminder of our past and the life to come.
Crossing through deserts and streets, from chaos to order and back, "Yellow Ball" is literally a rolling kilometer of work. But as Albert Camus reminds us: "The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man's heart." The combination of the notion of time and space, effort and achievement is paying homage to workers and work itself.
Because one must imagine Sisyphus as a happy man!
