The exhibition What Can A Dot Become? is curated by the artist Stéphanie Saadé. The exhibition centres around the primary sign of the dot. Modest, but certainly decisive, it is what connects the artworks of the 6 artists gathered for this occasion in the space of AKINCI: Ismaïl Bahri, Charbel-joseph H.Boutros, Stéphanie Dadour, Sirine Fattouh, Stéphanie Saadé, Lei Saito and Vincent Verhoef. The dot is present in all of the shown works, in a direct or indirect way, intentionally or not. Of different sizes and shapes, sometimes with no visible shape at all, it is, more than a pattern, a structuring element declined into a constellation of endless potentialities. What can a dot become? The validity of the dot is questioned in the title of the show: isn’t it too little or too unimportant to become anything at all? In the show it becomes a hole, a ball, a figure, a seed, a star… These dots of different natures oscillate between the tiny and the immense, the earthly and the cosmic, the political and the poetical. We are lead to explore these multiple dimensions.
