Motherland: Egyptian Sculptor Sam Shendi On His New Collection, the Women in His Life and His Homeland
In Arabic, there’s a popular saying which translates into “Egypt is a birthplace for talents”. Sam Shendi is one of those talents. He is an Egyptian-born British sculptor who believes that his imagination is the key to his artwork. His latest collection titled “Motherland” will be exhibited in Egypt from October 11th to November 2nd. The collection represents the concept of home, as well as its association with women and femininity. The exhibition, which will be held at Zamalek Art Gallery, marks his debut in Egypt. Due to his belief that his talent is in his head, not his hands, he purposely creates all his sculptures with no hands.
