Afra Bin Dhaher: Hymns to a Sleeper

Tashkeel, Nadd Al Sheba 1, Dubai, UAE

To kick start the new year and present the first exhibition from Tashkeel’s Critical Practice Programme, Afra Bin Dhaher showcases “Hymns to a Sleeper”, a new body of work which continues to explore the principles of photography within a world of surreal and constructed landscapes.

In this new series, Bin Dhaher presents a series of photographs which depict unexceptional household items in exceptional settings. From chairs, carpets, found objects, and even a parrot, Bin Dhaher takes the simplicity of domestic living and envelopes it in an enigma of intrigue and romance.

The first artist in Tashkeel’s Critical Practice Programme, initiated in 2014, Bin Dhaher has worked with performance artist and lecturer Andrew Starner, her mentor for the last 12 months culminating her research and studies with Hymns to a Sleeper.
