    Zahrah Alghamdi grew up in south-western Saudi Arabia where she was surrounded by traditional domestic architecture with artistically decorated rooms. Her art practice is inspired by memories of places related to her childhood. She draws on the idea of ‘embodied memory’ and experiments with translating memory and the feeling of place into spatial installations. During her residency at Eawag, Alghamdi accompanied scientists on environmental sampling and field data collections. The artist’s personal experience and observations in this landscape inspired her to respond with her own gestures and develop minimal and poetic sculptural interventions on site. Alghamdi holds a PhD in Design and Visual Arts from Coventry University, UK and is an assistant professor at King Abdulaziz University’s Faculty of Art and Design in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
