THE BOX is an independent collective of creatives based in the Kingdom. The name highlights a box’s multiple dimensions, representing the myriad of concepts, talent and ideas the collective will introduce to a global audience.
For their first show, the collective, made up of Faisal Samra, Jaffar Al Oraibi, Zuhair Al Saeed and Latifa Al Khalifa, presents ‘An Ode to Life’, a group of public sculptures at The Qal’at al-Bahrain site. The concept of the exhibition is to create awareness of environmental issues and also act as a commentary on how we litter and pollute our ecosystem.
The artworks on show are: ‘The Headstones’ by Faisal Samra, a sculpture project made up of collected plastic and debris; ‘On Consumption’ by Jaffar Al Oraibi; and ‘recycling…reforming’ by Zuhair Al Saeed. The exhibition is open daily 8am-8pm.
