LONDON.- Lawrie Shabibi announced that Shaikha Al Mazrou (b. 1988, UAE) will present Red Stack, 2022 at Frieze Sculpture 2022 in Regent’s Park, London. The public art exhibition runs alongside Frieze London and Frieze Masters and will be open from 14 September until 13 November 2022. Shaikha Al Mazrou’s sculptures are expressions of materiality—articulations of tension and the interplay between form and content. Central to her practice is her irreverent use of material and its apparent contradictions, using durable materials that are made to resemble something soft, pliable or ephemeral. Fascinated by notions of physical space, Al Mazrou’s sculptures and installations materialise as simple gestures that emphasise the representation of tension, weight and space, whilst borrowing formally from minimalism and intellectually from conceptual art, colour theory and geometric abstraction. Red Stack develops the forms and language of Al Mazrou’s inflated and folded steel sculptures, which in turn resemble helium balloons or giant displays of origami.

Shaikha Al Mazrou was born in the UAE in 1988 and received her MFA in 2014 from the Chelsea College of Fine Art, University of the Arts London. Prior to that she studied at the College of Fine Arts and Design, University of Sharjah. She is currently a visiting assistant professor at New York University, Abu Dhabi, UAE. In 2021, Al Mazrou presented The Plinth (2021) - a large-scale public sculpture commissioned under the Expo 2020 Dubai Public Art Programme, and intended to remain on site as part of the future city of District 2020. Recent and upcoming solo exhibitions include Red Stack, Frieze Sculpture with Lawrie Shabibi, London, 2022; Rearranging the Riddle, Maraya Art Centre Sharjah, Sharjah, 2020; Expansion/Extension, Lawrie Shabibi, Dubai, 2019; Solo Projects, Abu Dhabi Art with Lawrie Shabibi, Dubai, 2018.

Shaikha Al Mazrou is a finalist of Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize (2020). In 2018 Al Mazrou was awarded the first Artist's Garden commission by the Jameel Arts Center for her public piece Green house: Interior yet Exterior, Manmade yet Natural (2018). She has also been commissioned by Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Foundation (ADMAF), Abu Dhabi Art & Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority and The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC).
