The Third Line is proud to present photographs by Tarek Al-Ghoussein with a series exploring belonging and identity and how the relationship of the solitary figure and surrounding space is defined. 

A Palestinian - Kuwaiti based in the UAE, much of Tarek Al-Ghoussein's work deals with how his identity is shaped in a context of inaccessibility and loss in relation to an imagined “homeland”. In many of his photographs the artist is dwarfed by a vast desert landscape, reconstructing allegorical scenarios for the obstacles, barricades and walls erected in the Occupied Territories. This is Al-Ghoussein’s first solo exhibition at the gallery and coincides with the launch of his first artist book, In Absentia.
