Maha Malluh in Museum Voorlinden

“I don’t see the point in creating new objects while we have a lot of waste around us.” Saudi Arabian artist Maha Malluh (@mahamalluh) collected 95 used aluminium cooking pots for this version of her work “Food for Thought – Al-Mu’allaqāt” (2014). The pots were used by Bedouins; their lightweight material made them easier to travel with. The largest one could hold the meat of three camels.

The pots harbor poetry and life stories. Stories once told while enjoying the food prepared in them.

A classic work returning to the walls of Museum Voorlinden (@museumvoorlinden) in the new “Rendez Vous” exhibition marking the re-opening of the museum.
