Anna Boghiguian is an Egyptian-Canadian artist of Armenian origin. In her works, she explores the impact of historical, economic and political events. From a very personal perspective and with deep roots in literature, the well-travelled artist engages with the world’s peoples, cultures, places and major connecting lines. Boghiguian translates her nomadic experiences into artists’ books, drawings, paintings, collages and installations.

The exhibition “Sometimes unexpectedly the present meets the past” at MGKSiegen provides a comprehensive overview of Anna Boghiguian’s work in twelve rooms through ground-breaking spatial installations. In addition, new groups of works dealing with the construction of the Suez Canal and the time of the Spanish flu will be shown for the first time.
