Artist

Al-Ghoussein Tarek

Born in Abu Dhabi, UAE, 1962 and lives in Abu Dhabi, UAE

As a Kuwaiti of Palestinian origin, much of Tarek Al-Ghoussein’s work deals with how his identity is shaped in a context of inaccessibility and loss. His work explores the boundaries between landscape photography, self-portraiture and performance art.
