Skin Flick

Art United Kingdom 2019 OV
By: Adham Faramawy

“In Adham Faramawy’s new work, the body is exaggeratedly pushed into the center of the frame with a force that causes it to dissolve right out again, unable to bear the scrutiny of containment in a single, rectangular form.

Skin Flick borrows from the language of advertising copy the slick and slimy promises of hydration, youth, the flow of life and capital lubed up with pumpkin spice and sandalwood. Here, the application of substances onto the skin is not a straightforward act of agency on the part of the user, but a symbiotic relationship where everything we put inside our body is its own body, with its own agenda, sold to us by the hopes and rejections of other bodies, of lovers and pharmacists.”

Caspar Heinemann, 2019
