A loved one’s death is a painful ex­pe­ri­ence that’s dif­fi­cult to ex­plain; artist Hadeyeh Badri tries to over­come the lin­guis­tic dif­fi­culty of de­scrib­ing trauma by con­vey­ing it through art in her ex­hi­bi­tion The Body Keeps

the Score (above) at Tash­keel. The ex­hi­bi­tion is an ac­count of the death of Hadeyeh’s aunt, Shah­naz Badri. Partly sub­jec­tive and partly im­per­sonal, the piece in­cor­po­rates old pho­to­graphs, med­i­cal cor­re­spon­dence like emails and letters from physi­cians, and or­ganic ma­te­ri­als to ex­press the strug­gles of ill­ness and com­ing to terms with loss and find­ing hope again. April 12-May 11 at Nad Al Sheba gallery.

Park Rotana Abu Dhabi is show­cas­ing the best of In­dian art un­til April 14 in the ho­tel’s lobby.
