Curatorial Text By Jumana Ghouth

This house in Al-Balad is a space of quiet and determined resilience, where Sarah Al-Abdali invokes a cultural heritage that is both robust and fragile. The heritage of the Hejaz was once proudly manifested in its buildings. Distinctive houses, unlike anything else in the Arabian Peninsula, stood as a testament to the unique social life of the Red Sea region, where trade and pilgrimage shaped an extraordinary place of ideas, intellect and exchange. In Mecca and Medina, tides of reconstruction have erased the past irrevocably, it is only here in Al-Balad that history is inhabited, its echoes heard in the architecture. More than remnants or memories, architecture is a structuring force. Shaping and shaped by everyday life, it forms a kind of social fabric. Today, as the home of the two holy mosques, the Hejaz is synonymous with its sacred heritage; this status informs its history, but does not eclipse the wealth of its wider cultural identity. Al-Abdali draws on the sacred and the domestic, the mythic and the quotidian, to reveal the vibrant foundations of her contemporary cultural context. Invoking the Simorgh, a mythic talisman of endurance that rises time and again throughout diverse world cultures, AlAbdali asserts the resilience of Hejazi culture. Distinct from the phoenix, in the literature of the Arabian Peninsula, the Simorgh, a creature that sustains not only through regeneration and mythic retellings, but also a protective nature. However, despite the strident vibrancy depicted in these scenes, the delicacy of the materials stands in contrast. Ceramics, works on silk, miniatures on paper, as well as the meticulous, intricate detailing of each scene, demand close attention, urging reverence and protection. Only through the ashes of its predecessor will the Simorgh return – so too, the past supports and animates the present.

Resiliance

Respect for the domestic and the everyday is enacted in scenes that teem with Hejazi women, seen from windows, in gardens, living out lives that were integral to their moment. Often forgotten, these women were scholars and care givers, here are the tabariyat – who lived in Mecca from the 13th– 17th centuries, acclaimed for their intellect and their invaluable roles in knowledge transmission; in another scene, we see the rubbat – charity houses run by and for Hejazi women. Works dedicated to these women provide a powerful counterpoint to received knowledge, challenging anyone who believes that the Hejaz is and has always been male-dominated.

Refuge

Myths enact social histories. Within narratives of migration, the attributes of a mixed and vibrant cultural heritage are patterned. Here AlAbdali highlights the continual and active process of identity making that inspires her practice. Tableaux charts the historic journeys of refugees and outsiders, depicting scenes of great struggle that parallel personal efforts to assert identity and find home.

Relieve

From the historic, the mythic, and the domestic, opens a space of quiet contemplation. Al-Abdali renders intangible indeterminate states: between the contraction and expansion of meditative breath; mapping the unseen Bait al Mamoor, where the celestial mirrors the earthly.

Bio Originally from the Hejaz, Sarah Al-Abdali views herself as a caretaker of the region’s culture, preserving it against four decades of rapid ideological and urban transformation. Her deep appreciation for the land, architecture and heritage of her home is a recurring theme. She emerged as one of Saudi’s first street artists and her work explores Arab culture and Islamic philosophy through various innovative mediums, including illustration, painting, ceramics, wood work, drawing and painting. Her varied interests led her to a Master’s at the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in London, which offered her the opportunity to experiment with traditional crafts of the Islamic world, including woodwork, ceramics, miniature painting, mosaics and plaster carving. Her work has been recognized through participation in international exhibitions such as RHIZOMA at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013, #COMETOGETHER with Edge of Arabia in London, 2012, START art fair at Saatchi gallery in London 2014, the Islamic art festival in Shrajah 2017 and Art Paris at Grand Palais 2018.
