Adham Faramawy - The air is subtle, various and sweet
What is it to exist? To stand here now in this place?" Adham Faramawy poses this question early in the film that forms the central part of their installation 'The air is subtle, various and sweet' (2021). Voiced over by the artist the installation is a meditation on cultural belonging, the weight of personal history and the external forces that shape where we end up living.
