Unreal. Unseen. Untouched.
- Alaa Edris
This exhibition marks the first solo presentation of works by the UAE-based artist Alaa Edris. The exhibition will feature works spanning the last decade, including revisited work adapted to the exhibition space, and new works being shown for the first time. Alaa Edris uses photography, film and performance to enact experimental mappings and manipulations of her social and urban environment. Acting as anthropologist, cartographer and sci-fi voyager, she contends with dominant issues from the field of Arab artistic research, including the construction of gender, the relationship between tradition and progress, and language as a medium to identify, shape and articulate a culture.
