Adham Faramawy @ Cell Project Space, Jan 16-Feb 23

, 15 January 2014

Recent RA graduate Adham Faramawy is presenting his solo exhibition Hydra at London’s Cell Project Space, running January 16 to February 23.

The scarcer the product, the more it becomes a luxury, which is why Faramawy’s collection of 3D and 2D video works focus on the most valuable resource of all. Squarely centred on consumption and its mediation, water-and-well-being-as-commodity is explored through a typically aestheticised remediation of it through an iPhone. There, neoprene-sporting performers are at turns rejuvenated and inconsolably thirsty in a perpetual cycle of “post-rave thirst aftermath”, endlessly digitised and dissolving.
