Ebtisam AbdulAziz

Born in 1975 in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates; lives in Dubai.

The artist has photographed approximately 2.000 hands in Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. On chart sheets, sorted alphabetically in 27 files, she recorded the name, the date of birth, the nationality and the occupation of the respective person. "I wanted to show the mark of time, work and personal history on people’s hands, and create an archive that reflected the age and social differences of a portion of Sharjah’s population, highlighting in particular the differences between the old and the young, the healthy and the somewhat physically disabled, and people from higher social classes and the workmen who lead difficult lives and do extremely physical labour."
