Nadim Abbas: Poor Toy

Vitrine, Basel, Volta Zentrum, Vogesenplatz 15, Basel, Switzerland

Coinciding with Art Basel 2019, Vitrine Gallery presents solo show of Nadim AbbasPoor Toy.

In the exhibition, Abbas will arrange a supernatural domestic environment within Vitrine’s gallery space, with groupings of flatpack furniture, objects fabricated or sourced from IKEA and local second-hand stores, which will be “hacked,” with constructed materials or appendages attached to change their structure. Drawing heavily from the IKEA aesthetic that pervades homes around the world, the installation will embody the bland banality of this shared domestic language.

Alongside these sculptural arrangements, drawings and prints will be displayed throughout the space. These hybrid works on paper will reference technical architectural drawings and floor plans, operating in conversation with the groupings of furniture.
