Displaced by the Iraq war and now living in London, Hanaa Malallah responds to the DOLPH brief by expanding on her own experience of conflict and re-settlement. Her work explores the space between figuration and abstraction, between existing and vanishing.


Hanaa Malallah’s work stems from the visceral experience of the reality of war. Displaced by the Iraq war and now living and working in London, she has often pondered the irony of living in the very country that was – at least partially – instrumental in engineering the context which caused her to flee her home. A country that is now embracing and influencing her work beyond the particularities of her Middle Eastern background. For DOLPH, Malallah will explore these conflicts using the ‘Ruins Technique’, a practice that utilises the destructive process of war by burning, distressing and obliterating material.
