Opening: The Whale that Ate the Moon
Location: Memory of the Place
Time: 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The Whale That Ate the Moon (الحوتة التي ابتلعت القمر) takes precedence from a childhood fable imprinted in Al Oraibi’s memory. This exhibition includes a series of multimedia etchings that narrate fictional scenes within the realm of revisionist history. Throughout the series, Al Oraibi weaves together traditional Bahraini folklore and documented regional events, while interjecting his own critical reflections. The artist’s signature chaotic markings are a continuous thread that prompt questions regarding gaps and absences in local histories
