Talk // Sgwrs:
Adham Faramawy

11 November 2021

We are really pleased to welcome Adham Faramawy for a talk following the Jarman screenings. Join us for a relaxed look at their work and hear more about the Jarman shortlisted film the air is subtle, various and sweet (2021)

Adham works across a wide variety of media from computer programmes, moving image and apps to print. Their performance for camera videos are often installed as part of sculptural assemblages.

Mixing found footage with footage of two dancers shot on the Wanstead Flats nature reserve in east London, Iíve been thinking about the relationship I, as a person of colour, have with ideas of Ďthe landí, plant taxonomy (whether a body is understood as native, whether this means itís desirable), ideas of roots/heritage.

warp Library

When we're open again (!) the warp Library is open, a de-instututional resource for all. The collection mainly houses artist books, arts-related reference books, zines and pamphlets. These span from the socio-political to the experimental, from 60s avant-garde retrospectives to contemporary exhibition publications; and hopefully everything in between. This in an ever-developing, growing collection.
