Projex were commissioned by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Cultural Authority to deliver the fit out at the Atrium in Manarat Al Saadiyat – an arts and culture centre dedicated to developing awareness and understanding of art and culture.
This year’s theme was Noah’s Ark which symbolically points out a coming together of races, cultures and religions which reflects the model of the UAE. The artwork on display ranged an impressive selection of fine art, sculptures and video arts; all of which were showcased in the Atrium at Manarat Al Saadiyat.

The artwork shows the social and cultural legacy from the deep-rooted civilisations that existed on the land of the Kingdom of Bahrain and reflects the progress and vibrancy of the modern fine arts scene in the Kingdom.
Projex created the space for the artwork to be showcased. We built the plinths, frames for the artwork and the walls. We also delivered a unique black box for the artist to host an array of small clay figurines as portraits of herself for the public to walk on and crush. A video screen was set up outside of the box showing the public crushing her portrait figurines.
