Fadilah Karim

Fadilah Karim was born in 1987, Batu Pahat, Malaysia and a graduate of Universiti Teknologi Mara. She produces dark and enigmatic portraits that reference and weave in her personal stories and experiences. Autobiographical in nature, these delicately reproduced realities offer an insight into the inner workings of her consciousness, revealing spaces that are at once intriguing, psychologically charged and highly intimate.

Karim is the recipient of the 2014 HOM Art Trans Young Guns Award and has exhibited in Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan and Germany.
