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.

Join us for #NadimKaram’s Stretching Thoughts exhibition starting the 21st of January 2016 at #AyyamGalleryBeirut.
#StretchingThoughts is about the human mind and the limitless possibilities that thoughts can generate.
Tracing a line through Karam’s work over the last two decades, the upcoming exhibition depicts how Nadim Karam constantly reexamines the entanglement of the individual with the collective environment.
