Al Gargoor is a public space made up of a variety of furnishings made from gargoor (a formerly used fishing net), either in its native shape or with minimal alterations.
The idea of the Al Gargoor Project is to develop a useful yet creative space through the upcycling of old fishing nets.
Retaining the gargoor’s worth and displaying the value of its heritage is the installation's fundamental objective while also modernising the product. This aspires to leave viewers increasingly exposed to their traditional values as life develops and evolves.
This installation aims to educate the next generation about the importance of the fishing culture while preserving Bahrain and the surrounding Gulf countries' unique identities. The project also incorporates traditional palm tree weaving (Sa'af) and naseej textiles, produced and crafted by local Bahrainis.
