"Farther Than The Eye Can See" is the first solo exhibition of Basma Alsharif's works in the region. The exhibition includes video installations and photographs spanning the past six years of the artist's career. Presented for the first time, Alsharifs' most recent work "Farther Than The Eye Can See" is a four-channel video installation that tells a story from the past yet set in the future, and explores the passage of time and history.
Basma Alsharif's work explores how we relate and internalize the geo-political shifts that occur within our lifetimes and those we carry with us from past generations. Through experimentation with multiple media in single channel and video installations, using the anonymous individual as a vehicle for navigating through political history and collective memory.
