Al Masjed Al Waheed

 

 

The Only and Lonely Mosque is an architectural model accompanied by sculpture and photography for an imaginary mosque. Hundreds of photographs were gathered of mosques from all over the world, cut and pasted to create unity between cultures, including architecture and art among all Muslims - in one mosque named the only and lonely mosque, which is a play on words in Arabic; Waheed, and the Muezzin calling the faithful to prayer from the top of the minaret, but there is just one man coming to pray! These void spaces, a spiritual emptiness within Political Islam, show the stark loneliness from which Muslims are suffering these days.
