    Ahmed Al Bahrani never understood the meaning or experience of stability. His world is and has been one of constant motion. This can clearly be seen in all his works spanning a 15 year career as a sculptor and artist. This constant movement has helped him be inspired by the world around him and pushed him to challenge himself, to explore and challenge boundaries and to go beyond them and produce exceptional new work, new departure points, always moving forward. For his upcoming show entitled “Instability” Ahmed Al Bahrani has revisited memories, and deepened his nostalgia, where the constant “Instability” coming from the distant past memories and those more recent collide and merge with each other in the unsettled present. The inspiration for his most recent work is rooted in the enchanted animal stories of “Kalilah wa Duminah” a true classic of Arabic literature. Ahmed says “It’s a long path I am working on, and this recent body of work is driven by my inner thinking, it is an experiment in my quest, my search for stability.”
