Basically the work of Salim Bayri is about letting the eye jump over from one pictorial stone to another. In case an attraction occurs it is a matter of ‘scanning, holding and making’, as he states. In that sense his art is a compilation of objects and narratives that in several titles is described as ‘storage’. His work named “Close” originates from his home country where it is common practice to pass by unannounced at one’s door. Speaking through the intercom one says: ‘Close’, a shortening for ‘I am a close friend’ (or relative) and the door would be opened. Here in Europe the opposite result is easily created if one would ring the door bell introducing himself by saying “Close”. Most likely the door would stay closed.

Salim Bayri surrounds himself with an alter ego that he calls Sad Ali, a shortening of “sad alien”. This figure has no organs, undertakes no actions and opposite to a cartoon personality he doesn’t talk. As a kind of ambulant search machine he runs around checking out situations and things.
Salim Bayri: ‘I mostly use computer generated images, sound, footage and short actions because of their speed and fluidity.’

Salim Bayri is nominated for the Nationale Nederlanden Group Award 2018. The other nominees:
Pauline Curnier Jardin
