The exhibition is an open invitation to people from different cultural backgrounds and religious faiths to embrace each other’s similarities and differences.

Regarded in the art and design community for his subtle yet provocative exploration of the creative and often complicated links between religion, culture, and social justice, the emerging Doha-based artist, Othman Khunji,is presenting his solo exhibition entitled, Deconstructing the Sacred, as a response to populist narratives that misrepresent religious practices, misinterpret social customs, and misconstrue cultural behaviors.

‘Deconstructing the Sacred’ is Khunji’s first solo exhibition in Qatar, and features interactive installations created through the use and application of innovative technology, including 3D printing, Arduino technology, laser cutting, neon glass heat bending, and water jet engraving.

Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to see a host of Khunji’s artworks including prominent collections such as ‘The Five Pillars of Islam’, ‘The Selfless Holy Ground’, and ‘HER’. The exhibition also includes Khunji’s artworks that were exhibited at The Fuorisalone, Milan Design Week 2018.

Khunji is well renowned in the local art and design community for his subtle yet thought provoking work that explores themes of religion, culture, and social justice. He has previously exhibited at Msheireb Museums; Katara Cultural Village; Garage Gallery, Fire Station; The Shangri-La Hotel, Doha, The New York Times Art for Tomorrow Conference at The W Hotel, Doha; Kraftwerk Berlin; Menier and Saatchi Gallery, London.

The exhibition is open and will run until the end of September 2018.
