Caline Touma: The Awakening
As a multifaceted artist, Caline tries to challenge the internal world of her subjects by using various mediums and research. She hopes to convey more than the human body and to integrate a deeper, transparent, spiritual, and supernatural quality to it. This investigation of the human figure may help her to better understand the functionality and energy of an individual. Health and fitness are also important aspects in her work. “The power and fragility of the body through mind and muscle connection is a vital message that I would like for my audience to experience and understand. An idea that is beyond basic human form and a material world but rather rediscovering one’s inner peace through patience, discipline and virtue.” - Caline Touma
WORK(IN)SPACE is a series of exhibition projects by SACI 2nd-Year MFA Candidates in Studio Art, as part of the Professional Practicum Seminar. Students work directly with SACI's Maidoff Gallery to critically engage with the challenges offered by preparing an exhibition. Each week a new opening presents a coherent body of work of the artists. Working in a one-to-one relationship with SACI Instructors Daria Filardo and Pietro Gaglianò, students step outside of their studio environment to rethink their work in an exhibition setting, learning to consider all the aspects, limitations and needs of the given space to achieve the best final result.
WORK(IN)SPACE is held in SACI’s Maidoff Gallery and includes all phases of the exhibition, from the planning, to the installation and the opening of the solo show. Visitors are invited to attend the opening of the exhibitions, or visit during opening hours.
