Due to high demand, Mouna Rebeiz’s exhibition ‘The trash-ic. Or trash in the face of beauty’ at the Saatchi Gallery, has been extended for four days – until 07 June 2018.
‘The trash-ic. Or trash in the face of beauty’ presents Rebeiz’s personal view on current societal issues – each work displayed is not about painting trash as much as it is about painting a period that is “trash”. Not provocative or scandalous for scandal’s sake, but rather an attempt to convey the movement of the times, via the movement of the paintbrush. During a period of evolution, Rebeiz attempts to comprehend and pierce the mystery of a world in which we can feel alien and displaced; while truthfully reflecting the sad decline of human relations.
In tandem with the exhibition of her paintings and in support of the Innocence in Danger charity, Rebeiz has called upon a select few internationally renowned designers and artists to apply their individual creative energies and produce their own unique and precious ceramic piggy-bank designs molded in the furnaces of Nove di Bassano in Italy. To name a few, designers piggys on display are: Lulu Guinness, Jenny Packham, Jo Malone, Swarovski, Emilio Pucci, Elie Saab, Giles Deacon, Zaha Hadid Architects, René Caovilla, Chantal Thomass, Christian Lacroix to name a few.

‘The trash-ic. Or trash in the face of beauty’ at the Saatchi Gallery runs from 31 May to 07 June.
