Khasla-Zoujaja at Noor Riyadh Festival 2023

“Khasla-Zoujaja” is a contemplative space that unfolds in two distinct rooms. The transition from a white room with an octagonal ceiling to a dimly lit space with a golden dome invites visitors to enter barefoot through a narrow door. The first room, spacious and empty, subtly suggests the intangible space of the divine, prompting contemplation on emptiness as a canvas for spirituality.

Moving into the smaller, enclosed space, attention is drawn to glass and brass chandeliers suspended in rotating concentric circles, resembling celestial bodies. The seventy-seven spheres on ten lamps symbolize the branches of faith in Islam, integrating sacred significance with minimalist principles of seriality and repetition.

“Khasla-Zoujaja” is designed as a meditative environment, encouraging visitors to take their time, adapt to the half-lit room, and perceive the nuances of golden hues and atmospheric lighting. Beyond an art installation, it serves as a sanctuary for introspection, fostering reflection and connection with oneself and others.
