Exhibition | Faraj Daham: See the Unseen

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 to Friday, November 29, 2019

See the Unseen exhibition introduces Faraj Daham’s experience and research during his month-long residency at “What about Art?” Foundation in Mumbai, India; as part of the year of culture Qatar-India 2019.

This project addresses the concept of historical concealment and exclusion through a qualitative approach between what is visible (meant to be revealed) and what is real (meant to be concealed).

During his residency, Daham relied on local tangible and intangible components. These include Chinese fishing nets from Kochi, India, which are used by the artist as a tool to hide the intangible history, presented here through handmade manuscript paper using local materials from Mumbai.

Faraj Daham is a renowned Qatari artist who exhibited his works in Mathaf, QM Gallery Al Riwaq, Katara, almarkhiya gallery, among others. He also has numerous international participations including exhibitions in Spain, Korea, China and India.
