Dina Haddadin is an architect and multidisciplinary visual artist living and working in Jordan. Her art is the outcome of her ongoing explorations, questions and analysis of her relationship with her city as an architect. Using various techniques from traditional to experimental, she creates multi-layered works conversing the struggle over the right to the city and the right to be different in a landscape of transient urbanization, a study of places in transition and changing geographies and its imagined places. Questioning where do we fit? And how can one resist? When change leads to a perception of progress and defined only by new constructions.
Haddadin was born in 1983 and obtained her BA in architecture in 2006 and practices at Symbiosis Designs LTD. In 2008 she attended a number of courses at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and has participated in a number of local and international exhibitions and workshops since. Haddadin won international art awards from Egypt, China and France at an early age. She held her first solo exhibition, Transit, in March 2010. Haddadin’s works are included in collections in Jordan, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, New York and London.
