Watch Moza Almatrooshi's performance at Le Guepard, Alserkal Avenue
As part of Stepping Away: Performance as Practice in the Non-West, a two-year research collaboration between Alserkal Arts Foundation and Warehouse421, Moza Almatrooshi's performance explored questions of disposability and the consumption of food, labour and time was considered throughout the making of the work.
Moza Almatrooshi is a UAE based conceptual artist & writer. She obtained an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art in London, UK in 2019. Almatrooshi's practice operates within the study of erased mythology of the Arabian Peninsula, and correlates these myths with the structures that are upheld by the present regional political climate. Through a fictive lens, her themes materialise in performances, moving image, audio media, as well as text. Moza’s work has been performed in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, selected by the ICA London and BBC for the New Creatives project, and displayed in the second Lahore Biennale.
