Open Studio bei Mohamed Abdelkarim, im Gastatelier Gleis 70

Mittwoch 28.November, ab 17.00 Uhr.
Unser Gastkünstler Mohamed Abdelkarim aus Kairo ist noch bis Ende Jahr bei uns im Haus.
Bei seinem 2.Open Studio möchte er uns seine aktuelle Arbeit vorstellen, kommt vorbei und nutzt diese Gelegenheit.

In a durational performance, Abdelkarim will share sound, images and video material as part of his Book [“Let the sea eat me: To perform a ferry” ]

“Let the sea eat me: To perform a ferry” is a collection of discursive texts, appropriating water actions as the crossing, floating, drowning, withdrawing. Utilising those actions to questioning my position as an artist toward the surround, negotiates my research tools, the mental quests and body. The project departure from staging the sea and the history of fugitive performance in the water in the time of post-disaster.

During his residency at Gastatelier Gleis70, Abdelkarim is working on three chapters of his book, merging between studio practices and sport in the aspect of performative gestures and physical challenges.
