Maha Malluh is one of @jameelartscentre debut season solo show artists.
Living and working in Saudi Arabia, Maha's art is infused with the vernacular, visual culture that surrounds her, and the impact global trade and influences have had, and continue to have, on the country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Malluh’s Artist’s Room features sculptures and assemblages created from recycled materials and objects found in junk shops, flea markets and deserted construction sites. The discarded objects, indicative of a globalised ‘throw-away’ culture, are repurposed into large-scale installations.
