Mina Zayed, historical port of Abu Dhabi so instrumental for the country’s development, is being shut down after almost half century of operations.
I found an invasive sense of stillness and beauty, cuddling a space that survives through inertia within its own boundaries.
Leftover of memories and unfulfilled expectations. Vivid tones and insurgent plants. Out-of-place objects along with fresh presences. Lines seeking for company through the silent landscape.
The work reflects the acceptance and dignity of a place which is still breathing, owning its past as living memory, as necessary stage to be reshaped in a new form.
Waiting for something to happen, the space founds its permanent dimension within the temporariness of its status.
