Adel Abidin


Event Details

Adel Abidin uses various media such as videos, video installations, multi media installations. His main point of departure is linked to the intention to explore the complex relationship between visual art and politics & identity. “Using a sharp palette of irony and humour I find myself gravitated towards different social situations dealing with elusive experiences and cultural alienation.” Abidin said.

Abidin uses his cross-cultural background to create a distinct visual language often laced with sarcasm and paradox, while maintaining an ultimately humanistic approach. This sarcasm he uses is nothing but a medium of provocation to serve the purpose of extending the mental borders of the artwork beyond the limits of the exhibition space. He is always interested in creating opportunities to prolong the discussions beyond his work of art by enabling the audience to convey mental elements from the work into their daily life.
