"The Koran states on many occasions that mankind was created from mud. Once upon a time, the Earth and mankind were one and the same."
1991 born and lives in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Ahaad Alamoudi grew up between England and Saudi Arabia. She graduated from Dar Al Hekma University in Jeddah with a BA in Visual Communication in 2014 and graduated with an MA in Print from the Royal College of Art in 2017. Travelling between the two kingdoms, Ahaad's work addresses history and representation.
Through her work Ahaad is trying to push the boundaries of the historical representation of Saudi Arabia, by studying the country's reforming ethnography and showcasing it in the work she produces.
In 2016 and 2017, Ahaad’s work was shown as part of the Parallel Kingdom exhibition at the Station Museum in Houston, the Genera#ion exhibition at Minnesota Street Project in San Francisco and in the Phantom Punch exhibition at Bates College of Art in Lewiston, Maine. She was also featured in a film on the Guardian about the power of artists confronting Islamophobia in Saudi Arabia.
In 2018, Ahaad was the recipient of the Crossway Foundation x Middle East Now Festival Residency in Florence.
