Ghada Da: CunieForm

Satellite
09/03/2015 - 28/03/2015

CunieForm is the new solo show of the Saudi Arabian artist Ghada Da at Satellite. The exhibition includes a set of new video installations as well as large scale prints that investigate the visible architectural space presented by the body and its invisible counter part, the psyche. The work creates images that become psychological portraits of the human condition. Saudi Arabian artist Ghada Da‘s multi-disciplinary practice focuses mainly on performative sculpture and video. Her work is a journey of observation and exploration on disconnect, the genderless body and the re-birth.
