Abdulrahim Salim: Between Chaos and Serenity

Abdulrahim Salim: Between Chaos and Serenity is a survey of sculptor and painter Abdulrahim Salim’s major paintings, examining his recurring narratives and the breadth of his artistic expression. Divided into six chapters - Formations, Creation and Destruction, Conversations, Struggle and Waiting, Formations of Maheerah, and Me and She and the Apple and the Crow - the exhibition explores Salim’s investigation of dualistic subjects and their inner conflict or struggle, oscillating between the figurative and the abstract.

Maheerah

Maheerah brings together figurative and multimedia artists to celebrate Abdulrahim Salim’s work and influence with a reinterpretation of one of his recurring thematics around his muse, the titular Maheerah. The exhibition sees ten multimedia artists bring the character of Maheerah to life through short films, while 25 figurative artists embody her character in oil, water and acrylic portraits.
