A phobia is a state of mind, a neurosis that instils in us an irrational fear for a wide range of possible strange phenomena and/or or feelings of anxiety. 'Arabophobia' or the fear of Arabs has no more logical explanation or obvious origin than for instance a common and acknowledged phobia such as arachnophobia or the fear of spiders.
Within the widely heralded anti-terrorist policies of the day, traditional symbols and popular rituals are easily assumed as codes or activities of a terrorist nature. The Arab language and the Islamic religion represent insecurity once the eye and the mind have been misled into distrust. Coca Cola's ingredients written in the Arabic alphabet can be translated as an invitation into martyrdom, while the Allah Akbar of the muezzin, whether heard in Thrace or in Cyprus, still sounds like threat.

The exhibition will include the video projections 'Arabesque', 'Buddhist Temple', and Mosque, and sculptural installations built up around the Arab tile.
