The Remnants At Bin Matar House, Muharraq, Bahrain

May 6 – May 31, 2018

The Shaikh Ebrahim bin Mohammed Al Khalifa Center for Culture and Research is pleased to announce the exhibition “The Remnants,” the first regional solo exhibition by Saudi photographer Moath Al Ofi. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Shaikh Ebrahim Center and Athr Gallery, Jeddah

Moath Al Ofi’s first regional solo exhibition, “The Remnants,” presents his ongoing social and anthropological exploration of Medina, the holy city in his native Saudi Arabia. Al Ofi sheds light on certain aspects of the human, environmental and architectural landscape by casting an otherwise unforeseen gaze, all the while conversely igniting mystery and questions around the very subjects themselves. The meticulous detail in his photography serves to not only set the scene but immerse you in a time and space that would otherwise remain alien should it not be for his insight. The Remnants strives to share, that amidst silence, desolation and abandonment, stories of distant histories can rise before a contemporary backdrop.
