Sultan Gallery has the pleasure of inviting you to its next exhibition Yazd – A Thread of Light Through the Bazaar, Photo-Embroidery by Nadia Al-Foudery.
Kuwaiti artist Nadia Al-Foudery spent the winter of 2007 travelling through Iran in search of visual inspiration, which she discovered in the narrow alleyways of the ancient city of Yazd. The result is a collection of black and white photographs enhanced by delicate embroidery and strategic lighting.
The photographic images she displays are taken from the interior and exterior of the bazaar of Yazd, both from the ground and also from the mud roofs. The photographs are taken with black and white film. Once printed, the artist sews and embroiders on the papers’ surface, and then lights the work from behind to give it another dimension.
The result is a new artistic style Al-Foudery calls, “photo-embroidery.”
