Inspired by his life under Saddam Hussein’s regime in Baghdad, and as a refugee in Sweden, Sami’s art explores these memories through everyday objects. Sami’s first institutional solo show in the UK includes new paintings, and the first dedicated monograph on Sami. Expect to see large-scale works void of humans or living presence. Sami’s work depicts trauma, from the Iraqi war, in a non-traditional or stereotypical way.
