Salwa Aleryani 2015/16
The work of Salwa Aleryani (born 1982 in Sana’a, Yemen, where she lives and works) addresses the ever-shifting relationship between social, physical and cultural spaces and its inhabitants. The artist explores sites and structures of belonging, domestic and public infrastructures and uses both intimate and mundane objects and materials to unveil invisible and hidden territories and to refer to the gradual erosion of built environments on which we depend.
