DXB - Dubai Streets by: Jan Lemitz

Artwork Information

The streets of central Dubai tell a story that somehow differs from that of spectacular building projects. Trade, migration and commerce have a long history and show in many different ways.

These are excerpts samples of work from two series taken during transit stays in 2010.

About the artist

Based out of Düsseldorf I graduated from the MA in Research Architecture at Goldsmiths College in 2011. My work is informed by photographic practice, with a focus on landscape and architecture. Currently in residence with Fabrica, Brighton and the Time and Place network, I work on a research project on commemoration and the aftermath. Recent contributions to exhibitions include Voices of the Sea at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Calais, The History of Now at the f-stop Festival in Leipzig, There is no Wind on the Moon at savvy contemporary Berlin. Forthcoming shows are at Hal Project, Space Mass in Seoul, Smuggling Anthologies in Idrija, Croatia in 2014, and the Newhaven – Dieppe festival in 2015.
