In the works I Wonder Do You See Me? (2019) and I am here (2019), Manal uses the rose as a symbol of the relationship between visible and the invisible, creating a permanent image of a continuously disappearing object while addressing the wilting rose used on religious books covers written by men to guide women’s behavior and replacing it with a new type of rose. The sand roses are engraved by the artist hand using a question and an answer -as is usual in the artist’s practice- as a strategy to involve the viewer and make them participant of the artwork. The artist decided to work with the desert rose because it is an archeological wonder that has existed for centuries but really has no scientific documentation because of its ephemeral existence.
