After Illusion

Arsenale, Arsenale, Castello

Title: “After Illusion”
Curator: Eiman Elgibreen

Commissioner: Misk Art Insitute 
Artist: Zahrah Al Ghamdi

The exhibition “After Illusion” is a presentation of new work by the celebrated land artist Zahrah Al Ghamdi. The title of the installation recalls a line from the ancient Arabic poem written by Zuhayr bin Abī Sūlmā (b.520 – d.609), which tells of his struggle to return home after being away for twenty years. Al Ghamdi’s work evokes the feeling of exploring something new yet somehow familiar. The piece becomes also the means to reflect on the history of Saudi Arabia and its identity.
