In these collected works, Kalima goes beyond the barrier of language, playing with words and turning them into a composite element in her paintings. Under worn out aesthetics and an aged surface, we are invited to observe the calligraphy and go deeper within.

From the mere tangled letters, stripped of meaning, to the message raising awareness of the difficulties we face as a society in our time, these canvases raise the curiosity as only a written text is able to.

This project takes its inspiration from the homonym book by Carl Safina, the text 'Sensing the World: An Anthropology of the Senses' by David Le Breton, and the film 'The Elephant Man' by David Lynch.

Born in Orihuela (Alicante, Spain). Kalima finished a Degree in Fine Arts by the Complutense University in Madrid. She is currently living and working in London, England. Her work is primarily painting but she has been involved in other projects spanning installation and film photography.
