Bringing together works made between 2010 and 2015, Waheed navigates in Still Against the Sky across personal and public histories via reconnaissance satellites, a scrapbook, drone studies, and the inner life of Saudi Aramco, as it services the world’s hydrocarbon desire.

About

Through the optics of violence – to what extent does digital technology realistically convey the textures of a planet, a star, a cosmos, or a gated community? For Waheed this is likely the irresolvable distance between accuracy, truth, and affective experience. Bringing together works made between 2010 and 2015, Waheed navigates in STILL AGAINST THE SKY across personal and public histories via reconnaissance satellites, a scrapbook, drone studies, and the inner life of Saudi Aramco, as it services the world’s hydrocarbon desire.

The works in STILL AGAINST THE SKY are earth-bound, while intimately considering cosmic proportions. Using a range of techniques where found materials from the realm of space research, surveillance documents and unidentified memoirs are re-arranged to signify an altered temporal space and a narrative continuity determined by the artist as storyteller.
