Mohammed Sami: "After the Storm"
Mohammed Sami: "After the Storm" - Blenheim Palace, England - Highlights - Luhring Augustine

After the Storm, a major solo exhibition by Mohammed Sami opens at Blenheim Palace from July 9 and will remain on view through October 6, 2024. The exhibition will mark a decade of Blenheim Art Foundation’s award-winning program of contemporary art at the UNESCO World Heritage site.

For the exhibition, Sami (b.1984, Baghdad) has developed an entirely new body of work, building on recurring themes and imagery within his practice, as well as drawing inspiration from the history and collection of Blenheim Palace. Renowned for his evocative and multi-layered paintings, Sami weaves together belated memories shaped by his formative years, and subsequent personal history.

Through exploring retroactive memories, his paintings capture a world shaped not just by the weight of the past but also the present, creating scenarios that are often left to the viewer to conclude through their own experience and interpretation. As Sami has previously written "painting becomes the only medium to grasp what is not there in painting anymore."
