Reser­voir dots

Emirates Man - - CULTURE -

There was a time when, if you wanted to buy a piece of art, you would have to re­mort­gage your home rst. But a new art fair com­ing to the UAE is hop­ing to put an end to all that, by of­fer­ing af­ford­able pieces from more than 80 gal­leries from around the world. World Art ubai takes place this month at the ubai World Trade Cen­tre, and around 1,000 pieces (think paint­ings, sculp­tures, pho­to­graphs and more) by 100 artists will be avail­able, in­clud­ing this one by Turk­ish artist Melisa Mizrakli, called Num­ber 8, which is be­ing shown by New York’s Em­manuel Fremin Gallery. While you might in­stantly think it looks like the gang of crooks from Quentin Tarantino’s Reser­voir Dogs, Mizrakli uses dots and bub­bles in­stead of heads to de­hu­man­ise her sub­jects and hates them be­ing la­belled, sim­ply say­ing of her work They are what­ever you see when you look at them.
