Green Art Gallery presents a group show featuring works by Jaber Al Azmeh, Afra Al Dhaheri, Hera Büyüktaşcıyan and Seher Shah.
Afra Al Dhaheri’s work is rooted in her experiences growing up in Abu Dhabi and the wider UAE – a place of recent and rapid change. Working across various mediums, she draws out notions of time and adaptation, rigor and fragility.
Hera Büyüktaşcıyan integrates metaphors from local myths and historic and iconographic elements of different geographies to open up new narrative scopes. She locates the figure of the Other between the twinned spectres of absence and invisibility in order to weave connections between identity, memory, space and time.
Seher Shah’s practice uses experiences from the field of art and architecture to think about space, landscape, objects and aesthetics through drawing, printmaking and sculpture. In recent years her work has been concerned with the language of drawing and how to represent an experiential nature of space. The relationships within perspective drawings, the aesthetics of architecture, and materiality within drawing and sculpture are some of the preoccupations in her practice. Her work draws through scale shifts between the individual to architecture, personal memory to collective historical events, and the transformation of symbols and spaces
