Artwork from the AL Sabah Exhibition

Al-Sabah Exhibition

In ”IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE! TAKE THIS”, Al-Sabah transforms the gallery into a fantasy dreamscape embracing the shape-shifting potential of computer-animated worlds with a series of new sculptural works and a new CGI film at its centre. Al-Sabah builds a world in which selfhood and queer possibility intersect, where multiple intersectional “glitches” occur within the body, gender, and within internal and external worlds and ever-present technology.
