Spread, throw, divide, sprinkle is the new corpus of works by Elena El Asmar that investigates the female condition in the area of the Mediterranean basin.

Through the use of different pictorial supports — paper, canvas, fabric, tapestry — El Asmar subjects an image of a domestic object, such as lace, to a simultaneous process of dismemberment, cancellation and recomposition of the image, thus generating in the observant an act of "active memory".The strict codes of renaissance pictorial language are deconstructed and recomposed in such a way as to give rise to new languages capable of assuming a different meaning each time, in accordance with the decryption code used by each observe.
