I FEEL LONGING
Dar al Mussawir in collaboration with SMart exchange Programme cordially invites you to the photography exhibition “I Feel Longing” by the Syrian photographer Hasan Belal.
The opening of the exhibition is Thursday, April 27th, 2023, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, and will continue till Friday, May 5th, 2023 from 11 AM to 7:00 PM daily with the exception of Saturdays and Sundays.
The photos taken by Hasan during his residency at the Villa Ruffieux in Sierre as part of the SMArt exchange program present snippets of the lives of a group of migrants in the region. Centered on the feeling of nostalgia felt by these people coming from Ukraine, Syria and Afghanistan - with whom the artist himself can identify -, the exhibition aims to express, through the photographic medium, the feelings of these immigrants in Switzerland. If the longing depending on the city of origin, the homeland, the memories and the age of his subjects is at the heart of the project, Hasan Belal also concentrates his work on the daily integration of his subjects in Swiss society. Through their work, French classes and daily activities, the integration of immigrants is reflected in photographs that are as much artistic as they are documentary, bearing both hope and reality.
