Manal Al Dowayan

AND WE HAD NO SHARED DREAMS (Saudi Arabia, 2010)

Manal Al Dowayan investigates the sense of estrangement and loneliness which can seize one in urban public spaces. She does that by using the urban landscape, recorded in black and white, in large format, as a canvas for graphic techniques that refer to street art. With the elements that she adds to the image she enters into a dialogue with the city, and tells unspoken stories of regret, hope and desire.
