Manal Mahamid works across video, installation and photography. A reminder of the transitory character of human life, Manal Mahamid’s work reassesses linear understandings of time, whilst forming a hopeless attempt to pin down the ephemeral existence of all things, caught in the infinite process of being constantly replaced by the immediate present. Manal gained a Scholarship of Excellence from the University of Haifa in 2006, where she recently completed her M.F.A.
She was shortlisted for the A. M. Qattan Young Artist of the Year Award in 2005. Manal is a recipient of the 2007 Delfina Foundation's Riwaq Biennale Resident Artist Award, resulting from the collaboration between the Delfina Foundation and the A.M. Qattan Foundation. The Riwaq Biennale takes place in Ramallah, Palestine.
