Archaic Procession

The Archaic Procession emerged in Karam’s work in the 90’s as a visual vocabulary; a series of black, individual yet inextricably interconnected humanoid-animalesque shapes that became the basis of Karam’s artistic language.

The Archaic Procession communicates in an archetypal language that goes beyond borders, cultures and creeds. His figures, each different from the next, follow the same course, and share the same destiny. The diversity of its shapes emerged as Karam’s response to confessional or socio-political disparity as a cause for division and war.
