Saba Innab, Jordan

As an artist and an architect Saba tries through her work to tackle different socio-political realities through a critical discursive understanding that involves investigating the dialogues created in everyday urbanism, the landscapes of cities, and place as a social product. The residency in Cairo, which lasted the duration of one month, was an attempt to observe the city fabric in comparison to the fabric of Amman. This allowed her to develop her understanding of place making processes, and to study how spaces are made and unmade through social contestations over place representation.


The products of this observation, as an extension of an ongoing research in Amman, vary in form including maps, illustrations, paintings and installations.
