“Woven Whirls” exhibition by Sabah Naim, who discovers a profound connection between the principles of Sufi movements and her weaving techniques. The intricate process of textile manufacturing inherently involves the interweaving of diverse threads and colours to create a unified form. The rhythmic movements of the body during the act of weaving mirror the fluid motions of Sufi whirling. Through this intersection, she finds a spiritual resonance, where the art of weaving becomes a meditative and transformative journey, much like the Sufi path of inner exploration and enlightenment (14 January-21 February).
