Exhibitions / Origins
5 March - 23 March 2015
Opening on march 5, heist are proud to present their latest exhibition, origins. The fine art photography exhibition will be a celebration of places and people who have remained largely unchanged for centuries, capturing the fascinating traditions and raw beauty from the furthest edges of the world.
The exhibition will explore the effects of globalization through the prism of indigenous cultures. Origins aims to question whether the forces of globalization have eroded our sense of identity and isolated us from nature and traditions that once made us beautifully unique.
Heist founder, mashael al-rushaid, said of the exhibition; “we have found ourselves living on a planet whose citizens are slowly forming uniform pan-global identities, in which people are increasingly beginning to sound alike, act alike and believe in the same things. Despite the great contributions that the march towards modernity has made towards our civilizations, it has started to strip us of what makes us fundamentally unique, what makes us human.”
