Artist Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim explained that his representation of the UAE in the 2022 Venice Biennale is an honor, assignment and a great responsibility. In his speech to “Al Bayan”, he explained: During the Biennial, my work will be presented to the whole world, and with this I do not represent myself, but rather the UAE community as a whole, and hence the importance of this participation. He added, “For me, the biennial stage began, and I completely emptied myself from that stage.”
Maya Allison, Executive Director of Art Gallery and Head of Curators at New York University Abu Dhabi, supervises and evaluates the exhibition of the National Pavilion of the United Arab Emirates, which is being held within the activities of the Biennial 2022. About this, artist Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim, who is one of the most prominent experimental artists in The state: Before announcing my participation, preparations began with Alison, and with Angela Majali, Executive Director of the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation, and we set out broad lines, in order to work on the issues. He added: The elements of the local environment will be present within the proposed ideas, through form and raw materials.
Ibrahim, who has been working in the field of art for more than 30 years, explained: I had many failures and disappointments in my life, which helped me to move forward and produce more works. He added: There was frustration from the artists, because my proposal was different from the prevailing one, which produced a kind of resistance in me, which was evident in the presented works.
In 1986, Mohamed Ahmed Ibrahim met the late artist Hassan Sharif, which cast a shadow over his artistic experience. About this he said: That meeting looked as if one of us had found the other who resembled him, which made me feel that I am not alone in this artistic community. He added: In those years, the idea of art was not crystallized in society, so meeting him gave me confidence that I was walking the right path, through his views that were close to me.
