Moath AlOfi

Thad (The Collection) 2019

“Thad” is a photography and video archive of years of research by the artist in his quest for defining the soul of the desert through self-exploration. The images show fragments of ancient civilizations mixed with modern artifacts within a 100km radius of deserted land in the region of Alohain. By closing the time gap between the ancient and modern occupying the same space, AlOfi unfolds humanity’s history as an archeological dig.

Moath AlOfi (Madina, Saudi Arabia, 1984) is an artist, researcher, and explorer. His work focuses on cultural artifacts, heritage, and hidden treasures of the holy city of Madina.
