The Syrian artist Diana Al-Hadid creates massive, room-filling scuptures that explore and suspend our reality, using various materials like chicken wire, polyurethane foam, steel, wood or paint. ‘I want to explore the limits of my own thinking’ says Al-Hadid. The process of creating her artwork often starts without exactly knowing what she does. Thereby she carefully studies her material, like wax, clay, fiberglass or anything else. Al-Hadid doesn’t make art to show something, but to become interested in something. Now she is living and working in Brooklyn, NY.
