The Circle Game, WHEN DID YOU ARRIVE / WHEN WILL YOU RETURN, 2016
21 January 2018
The Circle Game is a major new commission at Alserkal Avenue that invites the public to interrogate the history, present and future of Dubai.
Two LED signs are installed high overhead Alserkal Avenue in the industrial district of Al Quoz and are in proximity to the concrete manufacturing facility as well as the workers camps and ask, ‘WHEN DID YOU ARRIVE?’ and ‘WHEN WILL YOU RETURN?’
These are the the all too familiar questions asked of people who work, live or are visiting Dubai and reflect its history and as a place of trade.
They are the questions that could also be asked of the city itself.
