    Adham Faramawy (b.1981, Dubai) is a London-based artist of Egyptian descent whose work spans media including moving image, sculptural installation and print. The human body is central to Faramawy’s practice, approached as a primary, sensual site in which gender and sexuality are fluid. Live performances to camera are computer-mediated to create compelling, visceral, and sexually-charged works, displayed across a landscape of high definition flatscreens and sculptural assemblages.

    Faramawy also engages and uses technology to discuss issues of embodiment and identity construction. He explores changes in perception brought about by the digital age, often drawing on the language of advertising, co-opting the special effects used to evoke desire for people, things and experiences.

    Solo exhibitions include Janus Collapse (the juice box edition), The Bluecoat, Liverpool; Hyperreal Flower Blossom, VITRINE, London; Feels Real, Marian Cramer Projects, Amsterdam; and Hydra, Cell Projects, London. Faramawy is currently shortlisted for the 2017 Film London Jarman Award.
