‘Domestic Acoustics’ is an experimental endeavor that explores the overlap of domestic and creative spaces, and their relationship to the female artist. Portraits by Qatari artist Fatma Al-Remaihi are removed from storage; their movement and display, and oblique references to the artist through conversations with members of the household, quietly expose the layered relationship between artistic practice and life in the home.

About the Director

Majid Al Remaihi is a Qatari filmmaker and artist. He is interested in the practice of filmmaking as a tool for investigating the institutional and social purview of art in Qatar and the Gulf region. He is also part of the artist collective Ab6al (with Abdullah Al Mutairi and Sarah AbuAbdallah), which explores the crossover of youth and ideas of development in the Gulf. He recently completed his first short film, ‘Domestic Acoustics’ (2017), through the Doha Film Institute’s Documentary Lab, which was mentored by award-winning filmmaker Pablo Iraburu; the film explores the scope of domesticity as a space for art and concealed life. Currently, Al Remaihi is working on another short documentary about the unravelling of art practices and their respective collections in Qatar.
