Aseel Alyaqoub

Aseel AlYaqoub is an Interior and Spatial Designer who works in a variety of media. By using an ever-growing archive of found documents to create autonomous artworks, she references the self-made memories of pre-war Kuwait as well as the current cultural and social taboos as a form of resistance against the contradictory and discriminatory factors she faces in her country. Her artworks are an investigation of concepts that aim to bridge social gaps by rebuilding mechanisms of lost communication through contemporary art. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of a ‘contradictory world’, she reflects on the closely related subjects of archive, memory and documentation. Aseel graduated from Chelsea College of Art and Design in London, and will be pursuing an MFA in Sculpture at Pratt Institute.
