  • Born in 1978, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
    Lives and works in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
    In Dawit Abebe’s observations of human kind, strange figures turn away from the world. As silent witnesses, their often-gaunt affliction and melancholic surroundings suggest they are bodies in exile, or the subjects of an unknown trauma. Together, they command the foreground of Abebe’s narrative drawings, in which proportions become distorted through surreal re-imaginings of a parallel reality. Their limbering forms can be seen hurling shadows along vertical lines, as their bodies dwarf cities in their wake. Devoid of individual description, these hybrid ‘beings’ become stationed in permanent view, eclipsing whatever there is to be witnessed ahead of them: the fate of mankind perhaps
