Aseel AlYaqoub





Aseel AlYaqoub (b. 1986, Kuwait) is an artist who works across the disciplines of history, architecture and cultural identity theory. Her practice is concerned with themes of nationhood, state apparatuses and collective nostalgia to discern why some historical elements fit well within the national narrative whilst others are deliberately forgotten. Using an ever-growing collection of found objects, documents and media, her work explores the construct of new nations such as Kuwait. Through video, drawing, installation and printmaking, she documents the nation’s processes of self-identification and state-making – that happened within pressure-cooker conditions – post-imperial dissolution and re-attachment.
