For their solo exhibition at Chapter, Adham Faramawy creates a new series of installations that bring together for the first time recent video works, paintings and sculptures. Exploring the entanglement of land, rivers and migratory flows through personal histories, mythology and flora, their work centres the nuanced and complex relationships between marginalised bodies and place.
Adham Faramawy is an artist of Egyptian descent based in London. Their work spans media including moving image, sculptural installation, photography, print and painting engaging with concerns of materiality, touch, the body and toxicity to question ideas of the natural in relation to marginalised communities. Faramawy has screened work at the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Tate Modern and Tate Britain, London and the Serpentine Gallery, London. They were shortlisted for the Film London Jarman Award 2017 and 2021. In 2023 they were the Frieze Artist Award recipient.
