Things to do in Doha: Check out a unique sensory exhibition

Check out a thrilling exhibition at W Doha’s Art29 entitled The State of You by multidisciplinary Qatari artist Aisha Nasser Al Sowaidi.

Art lovers and visitors can discover and experience seven worlds made of unique art installations as they embark on an exciting sensory journey.

Each unit of the installations releases scented smoke to create an augmented moment of complete isolation that takes a person to another state, a state of his own.

The exhibition is open until November 26 and you can visit anytime from 10am until 10pm every day.

The State of You explores Al Sowaidi’s unique vision as she explores the concepts of tradition and globalisation in Qatar, a country that’s constantly evolving.

Inspired by childhood memories, her work incorporates old experiences and behaviours with contemporary design and manipulates the altered memory into functional objects.

Her designs incorporate emotional significance and deal with memory, nostalgia and traces of time.

You can interact and be at one with the installations which use contrasting elements to represent the past and the present with a sensory twist.

For a change, we don’t mind being covered in smoke.
Free. Until Nov 26. Open daily 10am-10pm. W Doha Hotel & Residences, West Bay (4453 5135).
