Muhibbah: An Exhibition by Ariyana Ahmad

Offline

Muhibbah is a Malay word meaning a feeling of friendship, camaraderie, tolerance, and understanding. It is commonly used in a multi-racial, multi-cultural setting – like in Malaysia and currently now in Dublin. Ariyana is a Dublin-based artist who is interested in myth and legend, particularly the macabre and surreal. Her images with colour are vivid and evoke stain-glass windows of ancient figures and stories. Her dazzling work focuses on Malaysian folklore, but incorporates a mix of folklores from other countries. Do not miss the opportunity to view this stimulating exhibition.
