The path of Roses: A Multi-Media Installation

The Path of Roses was a Sufi-inspired installation of embroidered tapestries, calligraphic steel sculptures, decorated ceramic basins filled with rose water, a series of prints, and scroll-like silk banners.  Algerian artist Rachid Korachi created, in his own words, "an alphabet of memory that transcends the boundaries of space and time, in which the sacred and profane converge into one." In this way, Korachi merges a mystical symbolism with ideological issues.
