Hind Mezaina, UAE
Lives and works in Dubai
Hind Mezaina's work addresses her relationship and reaction to the accelerated changes Dubai is undergoing. She is interested in themes of cultural memory, change, the notion of heritage and the representation of Dubai in the media. Her work aims to communicate her anxieties to the changes in her city, and to also comment, preserve memories, and create a ‘visual archaeology’ of the city.
Working primarily in photography, and most recently in video and collage, her work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions in the UAE and abroad.
She recently graduated from the 2015-2016 edition of the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Emerging Artists Fellowship in partnership with Rhode Island School of Design.
