Diana Al-Hadid

1 September 2015

Syrian-born sculptor Diana Al-Hadid first gained prominence with a series of large architectural sculptures of toppled towers, inverted cathedrals and other richly imagined structures, all fashioned from crude materials such as cardboard and wax. She continues to explore architectural fragments and ruins, and to engage with a broad range of art-historical precedents, all the while pushing the properties of her chosen materials – most recently in a series of evocative panels ‘painted’ in polymer gypsum, fibreglass and plaster. The Nasher Sculpture Center and the Vienna Secession are among the institutions to have shown her work.
