Sarah Abu Abdallah: For the First Time in a Long Time

A coproduction with the Kunstverein in Hamburg

Jameel Arts Centre, Jameel Arts Centre, Jaddaf Waterfront, Dubai, UAE

This exhibition brings together works produced by the artist in the last six years. Working across video, painting, text and installation Sarah Abu Abdallah’s work is a meditation on our media saturated present, and the tension between our virtual personas and real lived experiences. Influenced by the vast and constant online flows of data and images as well as pop culture in the Gulf, her work is an intimate reflection on the anxieties of a hyperconnected present. Often diaristic and personally referential, Abu Abdallah’s video works reflect on how power inhabits the mundane details of the everyday, from the architectural configurations of a family home to the way public roads are accessed and navigated.
