Drawing on his own experiences living under Saddam Hussein’s regime in Baghdad, and subsequently as a refugee in Sweden, his large-scale paintings exquisitely render abandoned interiors, claustrophobic cityscapes and uncanny depictions of apparently everyday objects including clothing, mattresses, chairs and tables. There is a haunting absence of people in these depictions of space and place, whose power lies as much in what cannot be seen or hovers just beyond the frame.

Presented across Camden Art Centre’s Galleries 1 and 2, this landmark exhibition will include a series of major new paintings and will be accompanied by the first dedicated monograph on Sami, designed by Fraser Muggeridge Studio with essays by Darian Leader and Amy Sherlock.
