THE INTANGIBLE BONDS IN OUR EXISTENCE

Sara Abdu Solo Show

Opening: Sunday, 2nd of November, 2014

03 November, 2014 – 10 January, 2015

Space 03, RF Floor, Athr Gallery

In her first solo show titled The Intangible Bonds In Our Existence, Sara realizes the bonds that exist between humans and their surroundings; bonds that link any human to their emotions, realities and dreams; bonds that play an integral role that shape and affect us. She realizes these bonds as a co-existent consciousness within our own existence.

Ramy Alqthami Solo Show

 

AL BITRA

Ramy Alqthami Video Screening

Opening: Sunday, 2nd of November, 2014

03 November – 03 December, 2014

Space 05, 5th Floor, Athr Gallery

Ramy Alqthami revisits ‘Al Bitra’- the concrete block which was given to his family at random by the leaders of his tribe in Taif that bordered his land; a numbered block that easily identified this land as his. In his simple video of its removal, he reexamines the ‘Bitra’ as a representation of an economical, sociopolitical phenomenon that has consumed the state of humans. He poses the removal of a tangible concrete object with the removal of a metaphorical notion of borders and identity.
