Deer in the Headlights was a site-specific public art commission based on the anatomy of a mountain gazelle‚Äôs skull. The sculpture aimed at reproducing the event/experience of being confronted with a body out of place. Deer in the Headlights was commissioned by the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC), for InVisible, a public art project curated by Amanda Abi Khalil. It was first unveiled at Al Shindagha Historic District, Dubai, in November 2015. The sculpture was later adopted by Maraya Art Center in Sharjah.
