Lives and works in the UAE
Noura Alserkal's artistic practice is driven by excavating the relationships between the known and the unknown. She explores means of uncovering her family history and genealogy through archival research and re-engineered narratives. Noura counters an expected materiality by interrogating the immaterial; she confounds the commercial and the artistic. Oriented towards uncovering neglected or potentially taboo narratives, Noura's practice is encapsulated in materials and objects that resonate with experimentation and sharp-edged insight. Unsurprisingly, much of her process lies in the thinking.
