Doha: The Fire Station: Artist in Residence will launch tomorrow two simultaneous exhibitions“Mubarak Nasser Al Thani: Espresso 4 the Road” in Gallery 4 and“Yousef Bahzad: Earth Metal” in Gallery 3. The exhibitions will be open until July 16 for residents and visitors to explore.
Mubarak Nasser Al Thani: Espresso 4 the Road will focus on the rise of the metropole and the birth of global culture and how it connects people, both physically and culturally. His work covers architecture, flora and fauna, geography, history, and exploration, among others. Travel and road trips are a large part of the process while creating this body of work.
A work by Mubarak Nasser Al Thani
The playful depiction of iconic symbols stresses the universality of global culture, and how we come to perceive it.
The artworks also capture the non-tangible human side of global culture like amusement parks, circuses, playgrounds and others that are not necessarily a destination, but rather things embedded in our everyday life, through our moods, feelings, thoughts and behaviour.
The second exhibition to open on the same day titled Earth Metal by Yousef Bahzad, explores themes of erosion and manifestation, and the notion that the land itself shapes people, and subsequently, people thereon shape the land.
Bahzad says he approaches his paintings“through expressive abstraction and a tinge of the surreal through a lens of mystery which invokes questions within the viewer.”
