Fakhim’s work evolves around processes and actions in which an object is made or put in to motion to make images. The traces that are left behind be these actions, gestures and their echoes, result in his work. When he gets out of his studio and in to the sun, he uses a technique called cyanotype to experiment with a concept of objects in time. At the heart of his assemblages are the unstable tendencies of the materials that he uses. Together they form a choreography between the object, time and space. His work often is showcased as curtain- or tapestry-alike installations.
