Combining film, installation, and sculpture, Benton’s The World Was My Garden works with the palm tree as a metaphor for migration, labour economies and the history of slavery in the Gulf. 

 
Maitha Abdalla, Too Close to the Sun, 2021.

Abdalla’s Too Close to the Sun encompasses sculpture, works on canvas and photography covering intertwining themes including the wildness of human nature, the archetype of the feminine psyche, and the untamable character of wild animals. 

 
Hashel Al Lamki, Neptune, 2021.

Al Lamki charters various realms from the natural to the built and the imagined in order to foreground the scarcity of the earth's resources and the way that these events impact the human psyche.
 
Beyond: Emerging Artists is on show at Venice’s Palazzo Franchetti until 22 May 2022.
