Gaby Sahhar, French-Palestinian, works between London and Paris.
Sahhar works across painting, installation and film. Their work aims to deconstruct the representation of gender within public spheres to understand its wider implications on queer consciousness and communities. Drawing on language and vulnerability as tools, their work aims to generate conversations around affordability, residence and interconnectedness within city cultures. They employ speculative storytelling to outline the different ways psychological and physical framework fragment Palestinian identity.
Their work has been exhibited at; MAC VAL, Paris / The Kooples Art Prize (2023); PAGE (NYC), New York (2022); SPACE Artist Award (2022) and group exhibitions include Fragment Gallery, New York (2022); Sadie Coles HQ, London (2022), Whitechapel Gallery (2022) South London Gallery (2020). »
