Art Dubai: Take Two

I wanted to share with you some of the beautiful art work I got to see at Art Dubai a couple of weeks ago. 


Also, one of my favourites was a piece called "Well" by Abbas Akhavan. "Well" is part of Akhavan's ongoing research on domestic spaces and the power relations inherent in hospitality. In this piece, stacks of dishes placed, where the original water well was at House 44 (Al-Bastakiya), are converted to a fountain, though relaxing, references domestic work.
