Rheim Alkadhi is an artist who engages a variable practice. Her new media projects offer conceptual exits from the frameworks of war and occupation. Her sculptural projects confront the physicality of art production in a trans-geographic context. Born in 1973, she grew up as a bi-national citizen in Iraq and the United States. Her early years in Baghdad left her with the linguistic referents and aesthetic systems that inform her practice today. As a result, her work is a visual engagement with war from a psychological standpoint, and often through an absurdist lens.
