—————————————————

"Art is how we justify our existence" An ankh is depicted using the phrase "In art, we justify our existence" written 16 times in the Jali Diwani script. One of the oldest known written symbols, the golden ankh is the ancient hieroglyph meaning 'life'. It still appears in regular use today six millennia later as a symbol of the Coptic Christian community of Egypt.

The events of this year have caused many of us to contemplate our mortality or asked ourselves what is the point? While the great Pharaohs have come and gone long ago, the art of ordinary Egyptian still excites us with its beauty and mystery. The gold of the ankh is replaced with the colors of what we might strive to value as such, the biodiversity of life on our little marble.

عنخ
"الفن هو تبرير لوجودنا".
تم تصوير هذا العمل باستخدام عبارة "بالفن نبرر وجودنا" مكررة ستة عشر مرة بالخط العربي الديواني الجلي لتشكل مفتاح "عنخ" هذه الكلمة التي تعني  "الحياة" واحدة من أقدم الرموز المكتوبة باللغة الهيروغليفية القديمة.
بعد ستة ألاف سنة من أفول هذه الحضارة لا نزال نرى هذا الرمز يُستخدم إلى يومنا هذا عند المجتمع المسيحي القبطي في مصر.
في هذا العمل تم استبدال الذهب بالألوان مع سعي جهيد لتقدير تلك القيمة التي تأتي من تعددنا البيولوجي على هذه اليابسة.

« L'art est notre façon de justifier notre existence »
Un ankh est représenté avec la phrase « Dans l'art, nous justifions notre existence » écrite 16 fois dans l'écriture Jali Diwani. L'un des plus anciens symboles écrits connus, l'ankh doré est un ancien hiéroglyphe signifiant « vie ». Il apparaît encore en usage régulier aujourd'hui six millénaires plus tard comme symbole de la communauté chrétienne copte d'Égypte. L'or de l'ankh est remplacé par les couleurs de ce que l'on pourrait s'efforcer de valoriser en tant que tel, la biodiversité de la vie sur notre petit marbre.
