About:

In Alymamah Rashed’s new body of work, she explores the trees in the district of Al Ahmadi, located in the south of Kuwait. The district of Al Ahmadi was founded in the late 40s in Kuwait and has been notable for its oil companies, urban neighborhoods, and westernized way of life. 

However, for Rashed, Al Ahmadi has been a childhood escape where she would explore the natural ecosystem and ecological landscape. In order to explore the prominent district beyond its known historical connection to oil, Rashed is rebirthing the trees of Al Ahmadi in their life size scale through a series of paintings, watercolors, and installation to give the living beings a voice to sing and a room to grow beyond their tactical typology. 

The ecological efforts of the district need to be explored and documented in order to preserve its significance and to cultivate a future of a forgotten oasis.
