Spotted at Dubai Design Week: HEXALITE by Zeinab Al Hashemi

October 2016

Zeinab Al Hashemi is a conceptual artist and designer specialising in site-specific installations, spatial art and modern public sculpture, born and based in Dubai.  Her work is collaborative and she often experiments with new materials and techniques to create strikingly contemporary works that draw on and reinterpret the symbols and traditions of her Emirati culture. Devised around the hexagon, a familiar motif in Al Hashemi’s work, hexalite combines Swarovski crystals and mirrored steel in 33 hexagonal structures, to create an infinite series of kaleidoscopic views.

On view: 24 October, 2pm-9pm ; 25-28 October, 10am-9pm; 29 October, 10am-7pm in Dubai Design District (d3)
