Biography

Areej Kaoud

Areej Kaoud is a Palestinian visual artist raised in Sharjah, UAE and Gaza, Palestine. Her practice draws on her interest in a variety of narratives and disastrous scenarios. Kaoud’s practice incorporates text, sound, performance and installation to comment on emergency provisions and their enactment. Kaoud’s projects articulate the distance between anxiety, vigilance and even humour which are all a part of the preparations undertaken for non-immediate threats.
