Sharjah Art Fondation. Sharjah , United Arab Emirates
The Sharjah Art Foundation is pround to be showing Ziad Antars Residency project, Coastline.
Coastline is a photography project that will document the entire perimeter of the UAE’s coastline. It is an investigation into the social history and political economy of the UAE, but also of its visions into the future.
From the humble century-old small boat sea-trading to the massive state of the art construction projects, the UAE’s coastline is not only a road-map of its radical transformation, but also a reflection of its changing relationship to the sea. What was once a realm of economy, trade, livelihood and connection to the world, has also become the prime frontier for the country’s showcase of its new role in the region, accrued power and ambitions.
