Sculptor Diana Al-Hadid constructs baroque architectural forms such as towers, labyrinths, and pipe organs that appear to be in a state of ruin. Composed from steel, polystyrene, cardboard, plywood, plaster, and resin, Al-Hadid’s sculptures are informed by an array of influences, both Eastern and Western—ancient biblical and mythological narratives, Arabic oral traditions, Gothic architecture, iconic Western painting, Islamic ornamentation, and scientific advances in physics and astronomy. For her first solo museum exhibition, Al-Hadid made a new piece inspired by the Islamic astronomer and inventor Al-Jazari’s famous water clock, built in 1206, and early Netherlandish Renaissance paintings.
