Reem Al-Nasser

BIOGRAPHY

Saudi artist Reem Al Nasser’s work is informed by personal experiences and close observations of movement, mobility and cultural change within her surroundings. Photography, Graffiti, video and sound installations bring forth untold stories, and delve into the rational, psychological obscurity and all that is perceived as complex and absurd in human nature. Reem’s aphoristic and undeviating sensory installations capture and cast back the tension of unsettling complexities within the themes she explores. Al Nasser’s relies heavily on anthropological research with an ethnographic visual approach.

She focuses on practical social sciences as well as metaphysical ideas about time, space, and history. Al Nasser often puts herself on the forefront of case study to understand matters of culture, gender, social systems, and human relationships.

Reem Al Nasser was born in 1987 in Jeddah and currently lives and works in Jizan. She received her BA from Jazan University, and completed her residency at Delfina Foundation, London, 2017.
