The sculptural works of the Syrian-born artist Diana Al-Hadid are more reminiscent of fragments of spaceships that crashed in another unsuccessful attack, abandoned space stations, as well as fragments of fallen meteorites, which were lucky to fly to Earth.
The sculptor was born in Aleppo, Syria, and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Her sculptures are reminiscent of fictional places related to architecture, sketches of scenery, depictions of various geological forms.
Diana Al-Hadid creates huge architectural sculptures from materials such as polystyrene, plaster, fiberglass, wood and wax. The artist combines these materials in one sculptural installation to give them a feeling of excessive fragility, which is contrasted with the monumental grandeur and strength of the structure.
The artist herself speaks of her installations as alternative universes: “My installations are projects of fictional worlds. These are places with a sense of reality without recognition and inherent internal logic. " At the center of all her sculptures is the construction of a "tower" as the central theme of her work, which unites many associations: strength, power, technological and urban development, ideas of progress and globalization. They carry a part of the legend - the parable of the Tower of Babel, and elements of a terrible reality - the attack on the World Trade Center.
Diana Al-Hadid earned her Masters in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2005. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Keith Talent Gallery (London); the Kim Foster Gallery (New York); Skylab (Cleveland); the Bronx Museum of Art (New York); Vox Populi (Philadelphia); and at the Arlington Arts Center (Washington). Diana Al-Hadid's sculptural installations have been featured in the New York Times, Cleveland Free Times, and the Washington Post.
