‘Front-Line Heroes' Art Installation Revealed at Dubai Science Park

 The piece celebrates frontline workers who risked their lives to help others during the Covid-19 pandemic

Kart Group: The sculpture conveys a message through art, of hope, compassion, and selflessness throughout the global pandemic

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 22 June 2022: Kart Group and Dubai Science Park (DSP), a member of TECOM Group, pay tribute to frontline workers and heroes from around the world with a unique life-sized art installation located at the science-focused business district. Designed by the talented Kart Group, the art installation was revealed today to celebrate the heroes in the fields of medicine, security and public health who worked tirelessly during the Covid-19 pandemic to serve their communities. 

The piece was commissioned by Dubai Science Park in collaboration with NewBridge Pharmaceuticals and Boston Scientific. It was unveiled in the presence of several dignitaries and VIPs, including Marwan Abdulaziz Janahi, Managing Director of Dubai Science Park, Major General Abdullah Ali Al Ghaithi, Director of the General Department of Organisation Protective Security and Emergency, and Dr. Younis Kazim, CEO of the Dubai Healthcare Corporation.

The innovative art installation comprises 17 panels that come together to create an eye-catching tableau of a police officer, first aider, nurse, doctor, volunteer and cleaner. 

Commenting on the reveal, Marwan Abdulaziz Janahi, Managing Director of Dubai Science Park, said: “The UAE demonstrated high levels of resilience with the robust action we witnessed from our leadership to protect everyone, setting a model for the world to follow. We are also proud that Dubai Science Park and its customers have been at the heart of Dubai and the UAE’s remarkable response to the pandemic, which included providing cutting-edge testing, disinfection services, and vaccination efforts. Together, we have truly set a model for the world to follow.” 

“We are honoured to have this heartfelt art installation in our community, and we hope it can convey our eternal appreciation to the frontline workers and heroes that selflessly put their lives at risk to help their communities. The pandemic will unquestionably go down as a pivotal moment in human history, and most importantly how the world came together to find a cure and collectively fight this global challenge. We must ensure that history remembers that it was our front-line fighters who showed unimaginable courage and resilience, and helped the world overcome these unprecedented times,” he added.

Mustafa Khamash, Managing Director of Kart Group said: 'The sculpture conveys a message through art, of hope, compassion, and selflessness throughout the global pandemic. Creativity unites people, and the installation will serve as a permanent reminder of the importance of communities and the enrichment that frontliners have brought to many people's lives throughout COVID-19.'

The multi-layered celebratory art installation can only be seen in its entirety from a single vantage point. From other angles, spectators will only see a large 90-square-metre abstract composition.  The installation is hand-hewn from Styrofoam and completed with cementitious paint, the finish imitating a Cor-ten metal texture to highlight the silhouettes of the frontliner figures. The textured veneer gives weight to the otherwise lightweight and voluminous sculpture.
