Gobir - Old House
FM Oakland is proud to present "Old House," which showcases the work of Nimah Gobir and is a response to a central question in her work: How do I translate this memory? The show title is a reference to Gobir’s movement through different homes: condominium units, apartments and houses with her family. Each home delineates a period of time and in that way Gobir’s childhood and young adult life are divided into phases with each dwelling holding distinct memories. Old House’s paintings are a reflection on transition, family and one’s relationship to the idea of home, whether that home is persistent, transient, physical or intangible.
