The artist collective, featuring Fatima Al Qadiri, Abdullah Al Mutairi, Monira Al Qadiri, Amal Khalaf and others, is named after the political delegation Gulf Cooperation Council. It debuted at the same gallery during Frieze London 2013, since doing the rounds in Berlin, Brussels and Kuwait, as well as Achievements in Retrospective at New York’s MoMA PS1.
L’air du temps (French for ‘the current trend’) is an immersive video installation that consists a “roving shot across a recently purchased and renovated hotel particulier in Paris”, probing the tenuous relationships and potential symbiosis of “comingling colonial forces” in a series of digital interventions and interactions that are “mutualistic or antagonistic in nature”.
