Mai Al Shazly │Verzasca Foto Festival ResidencySwitzerland | Visual Arts
Mai Al Shazly, Egyptian visual artist working with photography, video, and installation. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently exhibiting her collective work at Biennale Africaine de la photographie at BAMAKO. Mai focuses on the psychology of human behaviour and its relationship to the surrounding environment (e.g., city’s size, urban density, location) and political issues (e.g., regimes stability and authority), her purposeful amalgamation reveals the breadth of conceptual art and its overlapping mediums, allowing her to speak to others across varying environments and schools of thought.
El Shazly was selected for the Verzasca Foto Festival’s artist in residence program in Switzerland, with the support of Pro Helvetia Cairo.
