Salim Bayri makes sculptures in virtual reality while listening to obsolete online chatrooms where strangeness, blasphemy, and pulling each other's leg are common practices. As a polyglot, Bayri can enter many of the different rooms where diasporas gather. He is currently based in Amsterdam. Bayri has been nominated for the Amsterdamprijs voor de kunst and the Vordemberge-Gildewart Award.
