In her performances and installations, Tunisian-Russian artist Nadia Kaabi-Linke (born 1978) explores material relationships by combining different kinds of fabrics, drawing utensils, printing techniques and other media. With diagrams and excerpts from the artist’s work journal, this monograph summarizes her prolific career.
Using methods similar to a criminal investigator, Tunisian artist Nadia Kaabi-Linke (born 1978) traces the scratches, bumps, bullet holes, graffiti and bodily secretions left on walls, bus stops and train stations. Transferring them to paper and objects, Kaabi-Linke records the remnants of violence or vandalism alongside the rarely unnoticed clues of human existence, creating works of fascinating delicacy.
