Talin Hazbar

Syrian/United Arab Emirates-based Artist

Talin Hazbar is a United Arab Emirates-based multidisciplinary creative. Her practice is at the intersection of architecture and art. Landscapes and natural formations influenced her understanding of matter as volatile and mobile, continuously moving and adapting. Hazbar’s interest in nature and ephemeral structures stems from nature’s ability to simultaneously operate and behave at a microscopic and grand level. Her practice framework is focused on redefining the idea of molds and exploring the space between material contingency and malleable molds to achieve articulated, coherent, and responsive structures. Hazbar’s work and processes aim to showcase the overlapping boundaries in nature, history, and ecology. 

Hazbar received her Bachelor of Architecture from the American University of Sharjah in 2012. In 2015, she completed the Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Emerging Artists Fellowship program in collaboration with the Rhode Island School of Design, Abu Dhabi, and the Tanween Design Program, Tashkeel, Dubai. In 2018, she was commissioned to exhibit in “Co-Lab: Contemporary Art and Savoir Faire” at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. She was selected in 2020 for the dieDAS Fellowship program at the Design Academy Saaleck. 

Her work has been exhibited in the UAE and internationally at fairs and institutions, including NGV Triennial, Design Days Dubai, Dubai Design Week, Beijing Design Week, Warehouse421, Third Line Gallery Dubai, and Art Dubai. She has been published internationally through different publications, such as Architectural Digest, DesignMENA, Financial Times, Grazia France, Disegno, and Wallpaper.
