Connect to Disconnect to Connect

Disconnection from someone or something does not necessarily mean closing all channels.

Sometimes, we tend to disconnect to connect with a thought, an idea or simply with ourselves. Connection becomes an essence to our life. We need water, electricity, telephone, internet and so many more connections. People find networking and socializing (connect) through social media. Are they really connecting though?

 

Books and script are meant to connect us to our history, but in an era where we are supposed to be connected everywhere, constantly, how is it that we are losing the connection to our emotions, traditions and ultimately the essence of ourselves?

 

In our world, consumption and appearance seem to overtake our scope of thinking. Would disconnection from material things or an image mean to disconnect from the world? On the other hand, a connection to something or someone can also open the door to connecting to yourself, to your own identity.

 

So how much do we need to disconnect to connect or how much do we need to connect to disconnect?



Thank you Art Rabbit

Hamad & Ali: Pop Icons

Lahd Gallery is proud to announce the premier of our first pop art exhibition featuring a Kuwaiti Pop art duo, Hamad Al Saab and Ali Sultan. Presenting the Arab culture and history through their own contemporary vision, both Hamad & Ali believe that although pop icons around the world have transcended their time to become symbols of popular heritage and national pride, their works will reflect Arab culture in a modern and internationally accessible way.
Pop art has crossed all boundaries across all nations and cultures to produce many of the twentieth century iconic images. We are all too familiar with the expression “15 minutes of fame”, a short –lived, often ephemeral phenomenon. Because popular culture is something that almost everyone can identify readily with these days, this medium has arguably become one of the most effective means of communication.

Reminiscing Kuwait  II

A tale of a Country

Concept

A single item used to have many different uses … Today we need many different items to perform a single task.

To every journey, there is a path … to every path, there is a destination … There was a time when Kuwait was on its way to being an Arab utopia through the vision of its enlightened leaders. Unfortunately, time often manages to twist history right in front of our eyes, without us even having the slightest of notice. Let us take you through the journey of time from 1936 to 1964, by screening a collection of historic articles, pictures portraying different aspects of Kuwaiti lifestyle during that period.

By taking you through that journey, we will let you decide of where we were, where we are, and what went wrong along the way…
