Join us as RU artist, Ahaad Alamoudi, and Lilly Wei, curator and writer, discuss how Alamoudi’s videos and performance practice is shaped by her research on Saudi Arabia’s reforming ethnography through the active engagement of traditional symbols and images.
Traversing between southeastern England and Jeddah, where she currently lives, Alamoudi often uses the desert landscape as a backdrop for constructed and vividly charged scenarios that reveal the complexities of a changing social landscape. As a female director, Alamoudi subverts conventional gender roles by focusing her lens primarily on male actors and performers.
