Unveiled in December 2011 on the occasion of At the End of the Line, Karim Noureldin has created a permanent public work on the roller shutter of the gallery’s shopfront. Nourldin has created many architectural interventions in Switzerland and the UK, including a semi-permanent work in waterside contemporary’s former gallery space in Wharf Rd.
In 2007, Noureldin published MISR, a series of photographs of shop-fronts in Cairo, Egypt. These observations of local wall-paintings resonate to strategies searched in his own artistic work.
The work is visible from the street when the gallery is closed.
