Ayman Zedani is best known for his multi-layered installations that constantly renegotiate the relationship between the human and non-human, animal and plant, organic and inorganic, land and water. His works are built on a series of experiments and investigations in relation to the new materialist philosophies from the agency of matter, to the concepts of multi-species collaboration as ways of surviving the challenges of the Anthropocene.

Zedani’s recent projects include Between muddles and tangles, NYUAD gallery, Abu Dhabi (2019); non-human-assembly, Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah (2018); Khamsa, Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris (2018); Arba’a, Maraya Art Center, Sharjah (2017); Thalatha, Sharjah Art Museum (2017); Tethered organised by TCA, Abu Dhabi (2017). He recently won the Ithra Art Prize and presented a new project in Art Dubai (2018) and had his debut solo show titled bahar-bashar-shajar-hajar, curated by Murtaza Vali, in Athr Gallery, Jeddah (2019).
