In this union of visual art and literature, photo documentation of renowned Emirati artist Hassan Sharif’s performances from the years 1982 to 1984 are accompanied by poems written by Italian-Lebanese author Cristiana de Marchi. With the corpus of these performances during this period of time viewed only by small circles of relatives and friends in the United Arab Emirates or London, Embodying reveals to them an extended audience for the first time.
