In The Fourth Pyramid Belongs to Her, Sallam investigates and reflects on he historical, archaeological and touristic attitudes towards ancient Egypt. To accentuate the absences of collective mourning for the ancient Egyptians, she portrays her grandmother as one of the pharaohs in a series of collage portraits, projecting, in turn, her personal grieving for her onto them. In doing so, this project becomes an invitation to re-acknowledge their forgotten humanity and to see them through the eyes of a girl mourning her grandmother

Sara Sallam

EGITTO

Sara Sallam is a multidisciplinary artist, designer, and visual researcher based in the Netherlands. Themes of absence, loss, and longing run throughout her work in which she explores ways of visualising things we cannot see and people we cannot meet. Against this backdrop, she reflects on growing up in Egypt, questioning the colonially-shaped attitudes reflected in tourism, archaeology, and museum practices, and criticising how they prevent Egyptians from relating to their past and ancestors.
