Collection: Joud Fahmy

Joud Fahmy was born in 1994 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Her practice involves exploring women's voices and expression through the translation of concepts such as family dynamics and gender roles into tangible works of mixed-media sculptures and audio-visual productions. She is interested in initiating dialogues between the traditional and modern and her artwork aims to transcend societal barriers and limitations by being a catalyst for shifting meaning and reshaping culture.

In 2024, Joud Fahmy will be completing a six-months residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris).
