Meet the Artist


Sarah Abu Abdallah

Through references to gender roles and the female experience, Sara Abu Abdallah's work explores issues of obscurity and value, probing the social and cultural conditions of contemporary Saudi Arabia. Abu Abdallah’s work has been exhibited internationally, at venues including Ala–an Artspace, Riyadh (2012); Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilisation (2010) and the Tenri Cultural Institute, New York(2009). Initially trained as a painter, she was later attracted to the documentary capacities of the camera as well as the possibilities inherent in video and performance, and she now creates works in multiple media.
