Largest Site-Specific Artwork Commission in the UAE

Halim Al Karim's Flying Carpet, 15m x 5m, the largest site-specific art commission in the UAE

Monumental art installation commissioned to Iraqi-born artist Halim Al Karim. The project was commissioned to L'Atelier Camelia by the Dubai Duty Free for the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, near the Dubai airport. At 15 metres tall by 5 metres wide, this monumental work is officially the largest site-specific art installation in the UAE. Born in 1968, Al Karim lives and works between Denver, USA, and Dubai, UAE. Inspired by the principles of mysticism, his practise focuses on the idea of uniting the hidden and the revealed, light and darkness, the material and the ephemeral.
