BREATH OF POETRY
art exhibition by Simeen Farhat
Like birds, my sculptures, too, move in space or perch somewhere. Eloquent words in many languages, by Eastern and Western poets, writers and philosophers, or my own written inspirations.
My beloved late father, who was quite well versed in Urdu, Farsi and English, and with a fanatic love for Ghalib’s poetry, played a tremendous role in the shaping of my current body of work. Awaiting his migration to the next world during the final years of his life, he would often communicate with his family and friends using verses of poetry from various poets about philosophical questions.
Join us for the opening at 6 PM, followed by dinner and a jazz performance with the accomplished Franky the Saxophonist, Ronald on Keyboard and Jason on guitar. Simeen and La Fontaine will be donating 20% of the art sales towards the Think Foundation www.thinkinc.me | www.thinkincfoundation.org
