Ayman Zedani’s (b. 1984) practice manifests between objects and multi-layered installations and attempts to renegotiate the relationship between human and non-human, animal and plant, organic and inorganic, land and water. His conceptual works are built on a series of experiments and investigations that look towards new materialist philosophies exploring the agency of matter, and consider multi-species collaboration as ways of surviving the challenges of the Anthropocene - deliberating upon human influence on the state, dynamic and future of the Earth.

Zedani’s recent projects include Between the Heavens and the Earth, Lahore Biennial, (2020); The return of the old ones, 21,39, Jeddah (2020); Between muddles and tangles, NYUAD gallery, Abu Dhabi (2019); Bienalsur International Biennial, Buenos Aires (2019); non-human-assembly, Sharjah Art Foundation, (2018); and Khamsa, Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris (2018). He won the inaugural Ithra Art Prize and presented a new project at Art Dubai (2018) and held his debut solo show titled bahar-bashar-shajar-hajar, curated by Murtaza Vali, at Athr Gallery, Jeddah (2019).
