Almaha Almaadeed is a Qatari artist, living and working in Qatar. Her work narrates the practice of archiving cultural memory and family history. Referring to herself as a “naturalist”, she enjoys exploring the desert landscapes and flora of Qatar.

This project questions the effects of urbanization in Qatar on re-engagement with nature. The artistic process involved contextualizing family archives, while the curatorial methodology employed an interdisciplinary reading; encouraging the audience to view Almaha’s work from multiple perspectives.

Modern literary thought from the Gulf has informed the conceptual lens, primarily Cities of Salt (Abdul Rahman Munif, 1984).

Curated by Noora Abdulmajeed
Curatorial Assistant: Aisha Al Moftah
