Adham Faramwy, Cola Revlon Mouthwash, video, 38 seconds, 2015
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, I’ve been thinking about the relationship I, as a person of colour, have with ideas of ‘the land’, plant taxonomy (whether a body is understood as native, whether this means it’s desirable), ideas of roots/heritage.
