Nevine Mahmoud / Matrix 188
Nevine Mahmoud’s sculptural installations invite an exploration of nature and the body through dark humor, shifting forms, unexpected colors, and surprising materials. Fragile glass, hard stone, and molded resin compose Mahmoud’s objects. At once sensual, ambiguous, and menacing, they evoke lips, breasts, and buttocks as much as fruit, flowers, mechanisms, and toys. Across the gallery space—arranged intuitively by the artist—conversations connect and blur the lines between surreal content and a pop aesthetic, the handmade and the manufactured, art objects and display furniture, and longstanding notions of masculinity and femininity.
