Stretching Thoughts Exhibition – Nadim Karam

Join us for NadimKaram‬’s ‘StretchingThoughts‬’ exhibition starting on the 21st of January 2016 at AyyamGalleryBeirut‬.

In the 90’s, Nadim Karam created the Archaic Procession, a celebration of diversity and plurality which he developed through public art projects, paintings and sculptures.

Retracing the line through Karam’s work, the Elephant- one of the most renowned figures of the procession- can be linked to his more recent body of work, Stretching Thoughts. The Elephant, by dint of its size, hosts not only the entire archaic procession, but also a mass of memories and humanity. However, even the Elephant could not contain all of this effervescence, which came bursting out in an aura that is depicted in the Peacock Elephant.
The Elephant then started to carry a cloud over its head…
Keep posted for more highlights on how Nadim Karam’s body of work has unfolded up until the conception of the Stretching Thoughts series.
