The 12th Shanghai Biennale: Proregress
Nadim Abbas wasborn 1980 in Hong Kong. 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. Abbas was awarded with the Asian Cultural Council Altius Fellowship and the HK Arts Development Award (Young Artist / Visual Arts) in 2014. Recent exhibitions include: P-Scape (public sculpture), Hong Kong (2018); “Camoufleur”, VITRINE,London (2017);“Chimera”, Antenna Space, Shanghai (2016); “The Last Vehicle”, UCCA, Beijing (2016);“New Museum Triennial: Surround Audience”, New York (2015); and Busan Biennale (2014). Nadim Abbas is commissioned to present a brandly new performance for the Biennale.
