16 - 21 March 2015 | Hazem Harb | Untitled
The development and expansion of Alserkal Avenue was explored by a site-specific installation that blended video with sculptures made of found objects from the former construction site. A follow-up to the artist’s presentation in 2014 of large-scale photographs set amidst the frames of the future warehouses, this work reflected on the people and industry that built the site, a memory of activity refracted through the abstracting lens of its architecture. Commissioned by Alserkal Avenue.
Hazem Harb uses a variety of techniques, and deals with a number of core themes including war, loss, trauma, human vulnerability and global instability. He continues to explore his own brand of multi-media, conceptual art using all the tools at his disposal. He has recently exhibited at Museum Villa Stuck, Munich (2015); Salsali Private Museum, Dubai (2015); Athr Gallery, Jeddah (2014); and FotoFest Houston Biennial, Houston (2014).
