Samir’s work explores experiences of identity, migration, and spirituality. He uses the queer body to consider human vulnerability and assess its connection to the world as an attempt to offer a liberating new reality. He blends religious references in his work which hint at the experience of migration and the necessity to come to terms with new, old, and similar ideas and qualities represented in different cultures. Samir’s recent exhibitions include a solo show Of Other, and Possibility, curated by Rachel Botha (2023), and Braid at Lord Mayor’s Pavilion, Cork (2022). Recent awards include Visual Arts Bursary Award, The Arts Council, Ireland (2022) and Artist Support Scheme, Galway County (2023).
