Nadia Kaabi-Linke at Marta Herford Museum

Kaabi-Linke will participate in a group exhibition entitled Magic and Power: Of Magic Carpets and Drones at Marta Herford (Gehry Galleries) in Herford, Germany which opens on Friday, 26 February and runs until 5 June 2016. The exhibition examines the parallelism between the magic carpet and the modern day drone using contemporary artistic means: objects, drawings, photographs, videos and installations that circle between fascination and horror around a historical issue of great topicality.


Kaabi-Linke will present her 2012 installation No One Harms Me Unpunished, a doubled mattress layered with dry thistles that appear both fragile and dangerous. The work alludes to a Scottish legend about resistance that transposes the subversive dynamics of oppression and protest that are quite common but disregarded in modern societies.
