The Third Line is pleased to welcome back Lamya Gargash, who will be showing her new body of work in the gallery Project Space. Lamya’s recent photographs expand upon her interventions in internal and external living spaces, seeking human presence in otherwise empty compositions.

Lamya’s practice has been concerned with the extensive study of identity and perception, and often documenting forgotten spaces in public and private realms in Emirati society. Finding herself caught in the chaos of daily life and the demands of motherhood, as well as the loss of several deaths in the family in the last three years, Traces echoes her longing for silent, stationary moments. The images showcase the artist’s heightened sensitivity towards finding beauty in the mundane.

The exhibition consists of a selection of photographs taken at various points in time, celebrating the visibly banal. These are spaces that still show signs of someone having left a mark of their presence – in effect also highlighting their absence: used plates after a family lunch, a stationery mickey mouse ride serenely staring off into nothingness, dirty drapes from Lamya’s now demolished house, and more.
