Wael Shawky: Isles of the Blessed artwork

Wael Shawky’s sixth solo exhibition with Lisson Gallery, and second in New York, continues the artist’s ongoing investigation into how multiple accounts of history have been conceived, recorded and disseminated. Featuring a recent single-channel film along with a number of new paintings, the presentation explores how myths often become belief. A natural storyteller, Shawky takes historiographical and literary references as starting points for his concentrated narratives, in which he interweaves fable, fact and fiction.
