Dina Khorchid

Dina Khorchid’s interest in a process-driven exploration of materials and mark making of repetitive forms and voids translates into formations and obstructions of visual and emotional patterns, portrayed as works on paper and textiles. Weaving and reconstructing fragments of heritage, landscapes and personal encounters into altered narratives to address loss, the passing of time and persistence of memories.

Dina recently completed the Salama bint Hamdan Emerging Artists Fellowship (SEAF, 2017); a highly selective year-long, studio-based programme in partnership with the Rhode Island School of Design. She earned her BSc in Visual Communication from the American University of Sharjah (2009) and has had her work showcased in group shows in the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
