Aidan Salakhova’s work plays on the capability of representative imagery to represent a multitude of meanings, primarily the position of women within established social conventions. Her symbols are far from mundane. The minaret is a recurring image: representing faith, power and unity given its function as the location of the call to prayer.
Ammar Mohammed Al Attar’s work tells a story employing the medium of photography. He tries to deconstruct the images we see via the media of Muslims praying by dismantling the familiar digital images to an analogue form, achieving a pixilated effect.
Cuadro’s curated exhibitions provide audiences with an opportunity to experience different approaches and styles of art.
