Shahpour Pouyan at the first Islamic Arts Biennale

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
The installation My Place is the Placeless by Shahpour Pouyan, on display at Jeddah Airport, part of Islamic Art Biennale.
In its inaugural edition, the Islamic Arts Biennale brings together centuries of faith and artistic expression. Taking centre stage at the iconic Hajj Terminal of King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, the Biennale celebrates cultural, intellectual, and artistic achievements that trace their origins to the House of Allah, Awwal Bait (“First House”).
The Islamic Arts Biennale’s Creative and Curatorial Team comprises a multi-disciplinary team, combining the fields of archaeology, architecture, and conservation.
Each member brings to the Biennale their unique experience and perspective in showcasing the meaning and beauty of the two holy cities, Makkah al-Mukarramah and al-Madinah al-Munawwarah.
