Nadia Kaabi-Linke - Artists - Aicon Art 2024


Born 1978 in Tunis, Tunisia.
Lives and works in Berlin and Kyiv.

Growing up between Tunis, Kyiv, and Dubai - and now residing in Berlin and Kyiv - Kaabi-Linke has a personal history of migration across cultures and borders that has greatly influenced her work. Her works give physical presence to that which remains invisible, be it people, structures, or the geopolitical forces that shape them.

Using a variety of materials and methods, Kaabi-Linke often works in-situ on projects that relate directly to their exhibition sites. She has rendered visible the bodily traces of people waiting at Berlin bus shelters and subway stations, the scars of domestic violence victims in London, and paint chips scraped from city walls throughout North Africa and Europe.
