Edge Of Arabia was founded by a small collective of artists who met in the mountains of Aseer, Saudi Arabia, in 2003. What began as a border-crossing collaboration, against the backdrop of the last Gulf War, is now an established platform which has grown bold through the realisation of international projects & the grassroots support for its mission.

Re-Construction | Walid Siti


8 JULY - 24 AUGUST 2014

EOA.PROJECTS is pleased to present Re-Construction, solo exhibition by renowned Iraqi-Kurdish artist Walid Siti.

This body of work, comprising paintings, works on paper and installations, was produced in 2013, with the intention of exhibiting it together. The concept behind these works stems from Sitis preoccupation with the ongoing process of change and transformation in the Middle East, specifically Iraq, due to politics and war. Although based in London, Sittis life and artwork is continuously influenced by the socio-political changes in his hometown.
