“I exist because I see colours,” Beirut-born visual artist, essayist and poet Etel Adnan once said. Her artworks act as living embodiments of this notion; contrasting hues sit side-by-side across painted canvases, infused with the memories and landscapes of her childhood – a bright resistance to society’s modern obsession with excess. While Adnan – a strong voice in the feminist and anti-war movements – has been creating consistently throughout her life, her visual art has only found widespread fame in recent years. Etel Adnan: The Weight of the World is a survey of her paintings, tapestries, films, poetry and more, on display at London’s Serpentine Slacker Gallery until September 11.
