Framework combines the architectural language of the European cultural space with that of the Middle East. This interweaving of perspectives is based on a transnational idea that is central to the artist’s work. The serial, non-hierarchical arrangement of almost identical modules is reminiscent of Carl Andre or Donald Judd but also evokes a multitude of cultural, historical, and autobiographical associations.
