Jumana Abdul-Razzaq speaks with Shaikha Al Mazrou following her debut solo exhibition Expansion / Extension at Lawrie Shabibi. The artist discusses the exhibition, the Jameel Arts Centre commission and how education has shaped her creative journey.
" In describing her work, Al Mazrou explains that it is less about storytelling and more about challenging perceptions. It comes mainly from the school of minimalism, with a focus on industrially made works. 'You find dichotomy quite a lot in my practice - something looks handmade, but isn't, or soft, but is actually metal.'"
