Sara Naim

Sara Naim (b. 1987, London) is a Syrian visual artist who grew up between Dubai and London. She received her MFA in Fine Art Media at The Slade School of Fine Art, London (2014) and completed her Bachelors in Photography from London College of Communication (2010). 

Through visualising micro-formations, Sara’s practice dissects how proportion shapes our perception and notion of boundary. She explores the physicality of these ‘boundaries’ and its form, with questions of: If borders do not exist on a cellular scale, can we define ‘border’ on a macro scale? Can shape be considered an object in itself?

Her solo exhibitions include Building Blocks, The Third Line, Dubai (2019), Reaction, Parafin Gallery, London (2018); When Heartstrings Collapse,The Third Line, Dubai (2016); and Heartstrings, Hayward Gallery, London (2015). Group exhibitions include Secular Icons in an Age of Moral Uncertainty, Parafin Gallery, London (2018); The Third Image, Galerie Binome (with Biennale des Photographes du Monde Arabe Contemporain, 2017); Sans Titre Vol. 1 and 2, Paris (2016); Hindsight, V1Gallery, Copenhagen (2014); and Au Lait! Quand l’Art Déborde, Lab’Bel Gallery, Jura, France (2012). Sara lives and works in Paris.
