The Ruya Shop presents the artist Sura Moayad’s first solo exhibition. Moayad is a recent fine arts graduate of the University of Qadisiya. She works with patchwork and sewing techniques which she learnt from her mother, thus deviating from the traditional and academic approaches taught at Iraqi art schools. Among her recent projects is a series of portraits and busts which distort and maim the human figure. Despite this, the artist finds healing qualities in patchwork, and describes her role as an artist as “repairing damaged thought”.

The exhibition runs from Friday 14th to Saturday 15th of December, 2018.

Exhibition: from 14th December 2018 to 5th of January 2019 open Fridays and Saturdays only from 9am-2pm.
