About the collaboration

The collaboration between Skånes konstförening and SAKINA started when Ikram Abdulkadir was awarded The Sven and Ellida Hjort Exhibition Grant in 2019/2020. SAKINA edited the artist publication We Will Meet Again in Paradise for Abdulkadir’s exhibition. The publication included the works presented at Skånes konstförening, as well as texts and poetry by Liban Abdule, Matthew Rana and the artist herself. The collaboration is made possible with generous support from Region Skåne Ung Kraft.
