Opening is on Wednesday, 14 January, 2015 at 6–9 pm
JAMM Art Gallery presents Light, Leaves and Yemeni Coffee, a solo exhibition by Yemeni-American photographer Ibi Ibrahim, showcasing an assemblage of conceptual photography and painting, marking new territories in the career of an emerging artist, often engaged with the social and political issues of the Middle East region, but here attempting a new strategy: How to develop an aesthetics of the quotidian? The result of Ibrahim’s residency at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris is an exhibition that operates as a laboratory of anti-memory and transience: Subjects have emptied themselves out to let not places, but circumstances and conditions speak for themselves. The objects presented in the show are not objects in their thingness, but objective realities without destination or aim.
Ibi Ibrahim (b. 1987) is a photographer, filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist from Sana’a, Yemen. In 2014 he was a resident at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris and had his work exhibited by JAMM at Art 14 London. His work has been exhibited in North America, Europe and the Middle East and is included in a number of prominent private collections including the Barjeel Art Foundation. Ibrahim is currently a resident at GlogauAIR in Berlin.
Exhibition is ongoing until 12 February, 2015
