Vida Downtown Dubai has teamed up with renowned visual artist Owais Husain for the first installation of Art in Vida 2017, with his video installation entitled Empires of Memory.
Vida Downtown Dubai is proud to continue to cement its strong support of the art and design community with the continuation of its Art in Vida program, as the boutique hotel celebrates creativity and individuality.
The interactive exhibition will be on display at the boutique hotel from March 10th until April 15th with its unveiling during Art Week, as the city is bursting with creative energy.
In Empires of Memory, Owais Husain explores the themes of identity, displacement, and memory through mixed media using both video and stacked steel trunks. His exhibition explores the evolution of memory through history; how one can be used to shape, manipulate, or distort the other and how this dynamic is influenced by the hierarchies of culture through generations.
The artist will be using film to take guests on a creative journey, seen through the use of both subjective interpretations of memory on the screens of the travelling.
