ABOUT THE WORK

Adham Faramawy will present a new film work continuing their research into identity, bodies, desire and queering ideas of the natural. Centering on our entanglement with local multispecies ecologies, specifically the Wanstead Flats and the Hackney Marshes local to Faramawy’s studio, the film will examine stories of migration and ideas of desirability, questioning the different ways a body, behaviour, movement or interaction might be desirable and when it or they might be unwelcome.
