About works / performance

Abdelkarim's work engages its subject matter not critically but rather within a framework of normalcy and compliance.
Abdelkarim has recently been in correspondence with artists from across the region and from the Balkans, for a collaborative web-based project. He is also interested in producing future works in the form of printed publications be- cause of his interest in the durability and mobility of print. He currently seeks to promote and develop this theme by supporting a network of artists who are also interested in this mode of production.
