Neudexta

TBT I did a solo project at Marian Cramer Project in Amsterdam, October 2018, titled Nuedexta.
Nuedexta, video, Adham Faramawy, 2018
It was comprised of a video short, sculpture and a series of framed collage works. This is a section of the accompanying text:

"Adham uses a series of collage and layering techniques dislodging images from their surfaces, using these devices to confront the construction of desire, the failure of affect and dysmorphic relationships to body image corresponding to... and marking an overlap (with) the marketing of medical products and procedures and cosmetics.

Through video and collage works, performances of vitality collapse into an oily, itching, aching skin-hunger, frustrated by ruptures in the surface of the image, giving way to an ecstatic, orgiastic metamorphosis of bodies, materials and products."

Collusion

I've been working on a commission for a group named Collusion based in Cambridge, UK. The piece I made is a 360 dance for camera video, where we allowed the technology to delineate the choreography in order to push at how traditional dance forms like the solo and duet might produce and ratify certain gender roles.
