Monira Al Qadiri
Monira Al Qadiri has been commissioned to provide works for the visual campaign of Abu Dhabi Art 2018.
Al Qadiri is a Kuwaiti visual artist born in Senegal and educated in Japan. In 2010, she received a Ph.D. in inter-media art from Tokyo University of the Arts, where her research focused on the aesthetics of sadness in the Middle-East stemming from poetry, music, art and religious practices. Her work explores petro-cultures and their possible futures. The visual campaign will draw on images from her series of sculptural works entitled Spectrum 1 & 2, Amorphous Solid Ghost, and Alien Technology. Selected works from these series will be on display at Abu Dhabi Art in November 2018.
