Ahmed Mater: Mitochondria: powerhouses

Galleria Continua, Via del Castello 11, San Gimignano, Italy

For his solo show the artist investigates on the structures of contemporary geopolitics, combining religion and natural resources.
By referring to Saudi society, Ahmed shows each system to be massive in both physical and conceptual reach, braided with economics, social transformation and control. Mater finds these global socio-political systems to be governed and guided by concealed and unacknowledged forces. The sources are likened to mitochondria; invisible unless deliberately stained, these biological powerhouses are the location and the processor – supplying, converting and storing energy within the closed system of each cell.

Ahmed Mater was born in 1979, Tabuk, Saudi Arabia and currently lives and works between Riyadh, Jeddah and Abha, Saudi Arabia.
