It is an evocative image: Sheikha Lateefa bint Maktoum, her face obscured by a yellow scarf, stands in the middle of the frame in a sparsely furnished living room. She is holding a large box-shaped clock, with several smaller time pieces suspended above.
The image, titled Patience, was turned into a real-life installation – complete with hanging, ticking clocks – as part of New Chapter, Sheikha Lateefa’s first solo, deeply personal, exhibition at Tashkeel, the Dubai gallery and studio hub she founded in 2008.
