In his work, ceramic artist Haidar Mahdi challenges western hegemonies of “good taste”. Instead of striving to simply make beautiful objects, he considers his creative process and exploratory journey, where one thing leads to the other, mistakes leads to new discoveries and revelations. He lets the material communicate when a project is finished, and so the process is visible in the result. After completing his education at Konstfack
University of Arts, Crafts and Design, he received his MFA from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. He has been exhibited at, Wanås Konst, SAK Konstakademien and Björkholmen Gallery, among others.
