"Bismillah" (Translation "In the name of God") is a solo show by Abdullah Elias. By using mixed media photography and abandoned objects, Abdullah Elias explores the demarcation of Muslim refugees in Thailand: the dichotomy between the negative portrayal of "Islamic" culture and the actuality of refugee life as well as modern Muslim life in general".

(Additionally all profits will be going directly to supporting the betterment of refugees lives and civil rights.)

Abdullah Elias: Artist Statement:

"My work explores the dichotomy of perceived Islamic culture and the actuality of the modern Muslim lifestyle. I have spent the past 15 years documenting my life and that of my family's along the border of Thailand and Burma through photographs, mixed media, sculptures and live performance. I attempt to examine my own life as a Muslim and the part we all play in relation to each other, how this effects the world and how the world effects us"- Abdullah Elias.
