Event Details

NIKA Project Space is proud to announce its fourth exhibition, I Can No Longer Produce the Limits of My Own Body, opening on 15 November 2023. Put together by independent curator and art critic Nadine Khalil, the group show will feature seven artists delving into practices that explore the body as an expanded site and medium; Liane Al Ghusain, Mirna Bamieh, Isaac Sullivan, Dalia Khalife, Sara Nirookbaksh, Lilia Ziamou and Christiane Peschek each question what defines the limits of our bodies and delve into the anatomical, animal, material and technological aspects of embodiment.

Palestinian-Kuwaiti textile artist and writer Liane Al Ghusain explores a number of forms including video, sculpture, and text to research the fields of mysticism, feminism, post-colonialism, and science fiction. Mirna Bamieh, renowned for her socially engaged work, is the founder of the Palestine Hosting Society, a live art project and platform for interaction she founded in 2018 to collect Palestinian recipes on the verge of disappearing. Through her work, Bamieh explores the politics of disappearance and memory production by unpacking the social concerns and limitations of Palestinian communities amid contemporary political dilemmas. Lebanese artist and scenographer Dalia Khalife, a recipient of the Home Workspace Program (HWP) Fellowship from Ashkal Alwan, The Lebanese Association for Plastic Arts in Beirut, is known for her installations, site-specific interventions, paintings and performative gestures which examine psychophysiological happenings as well as elements of spectacle and play within power structures, social events, and rituals. Abu Dhabi-based Iranian-Canadian artist Sara Niroobakhsh, whose performative and visual concepts engage the globalizing feminine psyche, references the notion of cultural objects through installations and performance layered with her own technology and science-based interventions. Greek-American New York-based artist Lilia Ziamou explores how technology can transcend the biological and ideological constraints that shape the body in digital paintings, sculptures and drawings. Christiane Peschek, an artist who lives and works in The Cloud, produces multi-sensory installation and retouched self-portraits observing the possibilities of online and offline intertwined lifestyles. Isaac Sullivan is a Dubai-based multimedia artist whose work explores emerging technologies and cybernetics and engages with ecological thought and AI’s impact on images, data, territory, and observation.
