Selected work for the exhibition Vantage Point 3,
Sharjah Art Foundation
August-September 2015
Curated by Hoor Al-Quasimi

The work is a continuous reflection on the public space observed trough the lens of an interior designer. With a necessary change of scale, rooms become spaces, and the domesticity into wildness. This on-going research on Sharjah’s public space sees the city as a living room, where some elements become still objects in contrast with its shifting environment and it’s moving background.
Some of the pictures depict some author-less outlets and shops, highlighting the success of their design and branding in relationship with the urban realm and the scale of the context.

Vantage Point Sharjah 3 is the third iteration of one of the Sharjah Art Foundation’s initiatives that focus on public programming and community outreach. VPS3 started with an open call announced in June 2015 to photographers residing in the United Arab Emirates.

This year we invited photographers to submit works on the theme of still life photography and received a large number of applicants from photographers, artists and students.

Vantage Point Sharjah 3 presents a broad selection of works. The aim of the programme is to foster the development of local photographers and encourage engagement with the cultural community in the Emirates.
