The art of Nadia Kaabi-Linke is related to places and their histories; it is as time-specific as it is site-specific. Across her work are constellations of cultural and historical, social and political contexts that refer to certain places or to coincidental events. Making use of many different media, artefacts, symbolisms and codes, her work is intertwined with socio-psychological topics: perception, memory, and geographically and politically constructed identities.
Her works are part of several public and private collections including the Centre Pompidou, Paris; Solomon R. Guggenheim , NYC; Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah; Samdani Art Foundation, Dhaka and the Abraaj Group Art Collection, Dubai, UAE
Kaabi-Linke was born in Tunis in 1978, and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Tunis, and later at the Sorbonne University in Paris. Kaabi-Linke currently lives and works in Berlin. The artist is represented by Lawrie Shabibi (Dubai) and Experimenter (Kolkata).
