Mohammed Sami - Camden Art Centre

Mohammed Sami’s (b.1984, Baghdad, Iraq) first institutional solo show in the UK will continue his long-standing exploration of belated memories in relation to time and conflict.

His large-scale paintings exquisitely render abandoned interiors, barricaded windows and uncanny depictions of apparently everyday objects or banal but highly charged things including clothes, chairs and tables. There is a haunting absence of people in these depictions of space and place, whose power lies as much in what cannot be seen or hovers just beyond the frame.
