Iraqi-born artist Sadik Kwaish Alfraji (Baghdad, 1960) can't get round the current situation in his native country. He resides in the Netherlands, but lives the same fear and threat as his fellow countrymen.This has a significant influence on his work. One enormous painting and eleven-part video installation provide a penetrating view of how the events in Iraq are reflected in his work. In Alfraji's words: " This exhibition is not a description of a war or a daily death lived in Iraq. It is a birth certificate of a Plague that filled the air in the name of “Freedom”, a freedom that has been dreamt of by the Iraqis for generations. I invite you to read the picture, not to merely look at it."
