Adel Abidin: Tire, 2024

“Tire” showcases an everted car tire turned inside out, offering a reflection on our contemporary political world. The work prompts us to question the authenticity of our observations—does it truly represent itself, or is it merely an illusion projected onto an object?

The inspiration for this concept is drawn from a common Iraqi saying that implies life is a continual process of turning inside out, where nothing strictly adheres to the logic of appearances.

Sculpture Material: Resin sculpture reinforced with fiberglass.

Artwork Dimensions: H 64.5cm x W 28.5cm x D 12.5cm
