My artistic processes are intended to capture, capsulise or fragment archival materials. I position myself as a 'translator' of untold stories and aim to reconfigure oral and optic traces under archives’ dust into a new form. Through dissecting my family’s repressed memories - often based on violent internal conflict in Cyprus - I aim to find a catharsis in them; an artistic representation and resolution of deposited traumas. 'All that is left of you' is in tandem with this healing process.

'Ibrahim [...] deal[s] with issues that are at the same time personal and universal – loss and memory [...] Through forensic archaeology and digital presentation Ibrahim brings to light the hidden traumas of territorial conflict'.  - Professor Chris Taylor, University of Leeds.
