Searching for a Fata Morgana2017Wood, acrylic, ink, concrete, cardboard, sand, motors, LED lights and rear projection screens15’x15’x8’Installation in collaboration with architect Clemens Bauder, which developed from sculptural and sound experiments done in Zekreet, Qatar in the spring of 2017. The imagery links geographic regions through the idea of the mirage- the desert oasis of Qatar and the North Sea of Europe. For the installation at Atelierhas Salzamt in Linz, Austria, we used the original elements and sound recordings from Qatar as well as expanding the sculptural vocabulary. There was a live performance with sound artist Andre Zoholgy on August 2, 2017.The work was presented again in “Articulating the Particular,” Contemporary Art Qatar, Qatar Museums, Kraftwerk, Berlin, Germany, curated by Dr. Bahaaeldin Abudya and Aisha Nasser Al Sowaidi, Dec 2017.

Made by Qatar A sandcasting workshop in collaboration with Aformal Academy (Merve Bedir and Jason Hilgefort) and Transitional School for the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial. Co-led with Richard Blackwell, Chris Buchakjian and Diane Derr, participants included VCUarts Qatar MFA Design students, alumni and community members from Doha, Qatar. “Made in Qatar,” was hosted at Qatar Museums’ Fire Station from August 10-17, 2018 and explored the local metal recycling industry.Presented at the Yapi Kredi Cultural Center September 22-November 4, 2018, as part of the “Transitional School,” which brought brought together the outcomes of workshops performed at institutions across Europe and Asia (INDA ve Space Saloon-Bangkok, RMIT-Saigon, Bilgi University- Istanbul, VCUarts Qatar/Fire Station-Doha). The locations were chosen for their historical relationship to the Silk Road and the flows of material, culture and ideas that linked the region. “Transitional School” looked at the rise of new urban centers on this same route and organized workshops on learning from translocal flows of materials and resources. In the exhibition, we presented video documentation of the workshop (edited by Hadeer Omar), cast tests and ephemera from the process and one large sculptural cast based on the carvings at Al-Jassasiya in the north of Qatar.
