FLAME was born in Brussels in 2010. An artist duo comprised of Taslima Ahmed and Manuel Gnam, they live and work in Berlin, Germany. In their individual and collective practices their work is ambiguous of contemporary art markets, it interrogates art historical tropes, particularly within painting, and plays with notions of desire and desirability and an overall analysis of the fractal splintering of our minds post-internet. FLAME has had recent solo and group exhibitions at Balice Hertling, Paris; Park View, Los Angeles; Real Fine Arts, New York and Brussels; Gagosian Gallery, Athens. They are represented by Galerie Noah Kink, Berlin, Germany.
