Currently On the Spine: When She Looked Back She Saw Darkness by Basim Magdy
When She Looked Back She Saw Darkness, 2011-2014 departs from an image that questions our understanding of reality and its representation through the personal, the emotional and the inherent absurd. The indirect and ambiguous connection between the fragmented image on the spine of six issues of the magazine and the six individual images which will simultaneously appear inside the same six issues are a reflection of the complexity of reality through an investigation of the role tiny details play in our comprehension of events.
