LAST CHANCE Linda Adele Goodine and Saba Qizilbash: Crossings and Corridors
Crossing and Corridors features the work of two artists who deal with harsh geopolitical realities in their work through widely different methods. Qizilbash’s intricate, enticing drawings lure the viewer into a charged, hostile space, such as a border crossing between Pakistan and India. Goodine’s work, by contrast, is massive, complex, and vividly colourful, and deals with topics such as the rising conflicts in the struggle between land conservation and economic progress.
It’s curated by Flounder Lee, artist, curator, associate professor of Studio Art at AUD, and possessor of what must be one of the ten best names in the UAE. “I chose these two amazing artists as much for their differences as their similarities,” he says.“Qizilbash creates intricate graphite drawings and Goodine creates giant colourful photographs. Both, though, work with themes such as harsh socio-political realities. Additionally, they are also two of the hardest working and most interesting artists that I’ve ever had the honour of working with.”
