Artist in Residence : Karem Ibrahim (06 – 07/2014)
Karem was born in Cairo. He studied at Cairo Art Academy, UEL and the Slade School of Art (UCL) and has participated in national and international art shows and events. He also affiliated with Critical Practice, a multi-disciplinary group, and is a member of the politically engaged Implicated Theatre group, he works in a variety of media. Taking his own observations and experiences as an Egyptian living in Britain as his starting point, Karem Ibrahim’s work explores value, in both its theoretical and tangible meanings. In one of his latest works, a mixed-media installation and performance “Randomly Selected”, he is inspired by borderline situations and transgressions as well as by the relationship between authority and inequality.
During June to July in 2014, we have had Karem as our Resident Artist who has conducted an artist talk and a live performance at our Kaitak Campus.
