Sherin Guirguis

Sherin Guirguis was born in Luxor, Egypt in 1974 and now lives in Los Angeles, CA. Her work engages both formal and social concerns by juxtaposing the reductive Western language of minimalist aesthetics with that of Eastern ornamentation. The work attempts to problematize the history of decoration and ornamentation and its relationship with social structures, cultural identity and Women’s agency.
