Nadim Abbas

    BIOGRAPHY

    Nadim Abbas (b. 1980, Hong Kong) currently lives and works in Hong Kong. He received his BFA from London’s Chelsea College of Art & Design in 2002 and MPhil from the University of Hong Kong Department of Comparative Literature in 2006.

    Nadim Abbas is a visual artist. His work explores technologies of perception, culminating in the construction of complex set pieces where objects exist in an ambiguous relationship with their own image, and bodies succumb to the seduction of space.

    He was awarded the Hyde Park Art Center Residency, Chicago, USA (2018); Osage Art Foundation and Fundaziun Nairs Hong Kong/Switzerland Cultural Exchange Project (2017); Asian Cultural Council Altius Fellowship; and the HK Arts Development Award (Young Artist / Visual Arts) in 2014. His site-specific public sculpture ‘P – SCAPE’ was commissioned at Tai Kwun Prison Yard, Hong Kong (2018). Abbas was included in Omar Kholeif’s recent publication ‘The Artists Who Will Change the World’ published by Thames and Hudson in 2018.
