Woven Identities examines how we adapt or conform to our immediate environment, and questions how the transient lifestyle in the UAE affects the sustainability of interdependent relationships.
A group exhibition by the Visual Arts Capstones. Featuring the works of Agustine Zegers, Noor Al Mehairbi, Souhail Wardi, Shamsa Al Dhaheri, Sherina Al Sowaidi, and Sophie Arni.
Through networks of intertwined yarn, Al Sowaidi attempts to depict the complexities of UAE culture and identity in the face of rapid change.
By using the palm tree as a vessel, Al Dhaheri goes over complex topics in Emirati society by contrasting the past and present.
In the face of stereotypes and prejudice, what would you do? Would you make yourself as small as possible, or remain confident in your own identity?
Ebb & Flow is an exploration into the instabilities we may face in our everyday modern society.
