Works by Hana Almilli

Hana Almilli is a multimedia artist, textile designer, and poet based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In 2019, she graduated from California College of Arts, centering on Textiles and Creative Writing. Currently, she is engaged with the Master's program in Arts and Culture Management from Rome Business School, Italy. 

Hana’s research-based practice explores the idea of recreating affected and resurrected identities through the material culture of textile, and assemblages. Belonging to Turkish, Syrian, Kurdish, and Saudi lineage, she was persuaded by questions of identity. Enquiring into perpetual alienation, her ideology developed into discovering, and representing the term Al Ghorba (estrangement in a foreign land). Consequently, Hana’s visual structure interrogates nostalgia through weaving, dyeing, embroidering, and photography. 

In 2019, Hana conducted her first solo show, Sada Kharaet Ghorbati at Isabelle Percy West Gallery in Oakland, California. She self-published the collection of her poetry as a book, Al Ghorba.
