WIELS presents a solo exhibition by Lebanese-born, Beirut-based artist Akram Zaatari (b.1966). Zaatari showed one of the most celebrated works at last year’s Venice Biennale, Letter to a Refusing Pilot, and brings this film installation to WIELS, together with three works that revolve around letter writing, or corresponding with an imaginary addressee.
The title of the exhibition refers to Zaatari’s cinematic essay-film from 2003, the similarly titled This Day. Ten years later, with the war in Syria escalating and the unsolvable Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he uses the work as a prism through which to bring the past and the present into focus.
