Habib

The project Habib shows a research on the artist’s identity and its intersecting factors. The installation underlines the overlap between fashion design and architecture, and the body as a medium plays an important role in the artwork(s). Themes including repetition, mobility and transformability are distinctively reworked in the universe of Abiadh’s Tunisian nomadic roots and the world of ever-influencing American Hip-Hop culture.
