Still Life Photographs || 2014 - ongoing

This body of work marks new territories in the career of an emerging artist, often engaged with the social and political issues of the Middle East region, but here attempting a new strategy: How to develop an aesthetics of the quotidian? The result of Ibrahim’s residency at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris is an exhibition that operates as a laboratory of anti-memory and transience: Subjects have emptied themselves out to let not places, but circumstances and conditions speak for themselves. The objects presented in the show are not objects in their thingness, but objective realities without destination or aim.                                                            - Arie Amaya Akkerman
