Lawrie Shabibi is pleased to announce the participation of Driss Ouadahi in Systems of Demarcation at the Von der Heydt-Kunsthalle in Wuppertal-Barmen, Germany opening on 25 February 2018.
Ouadahi presents a series of paintings depicting high-rise buildings, many of which are present in both European and North African cityscapes as perpetually-unfinished shell constructions, highlighting the precarious situation of those trying to find a home in a modern environment.
Featuring alongside Ouadahi’s paintings, are works by Susan Hefuna, Mona Hatoum, Kader Attia, Mounir Fatmi, Tamara KE and Saadan Afif, with whom the artist interacts, either directly or indirectly. Together the works explore the interconnected themes of migration, colonialism, barriers, exclusion, and identity through various media and approaches.
The exhibition continues until 6 May, 2018.
