No time!.. “I always wonder why I no longer have enough time…How to grasp and represent the passing of hours? Could I create alternative ways to measure and perceive time so it passes more slowly?”
AiR Open Studio: Ahmed Mohsen Mansour
Cairo, Egypt / Video, Experimental animation and photography
Ahmed Mohsen Mansour (1987), Pro Helvetia Cairo artist in residence -currently in residence at Rote Fabrik, Zürich – is holding the final event of his residency program
for all production and results where he has produced in Switzerland. Exhibition will containing of 6 artworks under theme of “Time”.
Mansour’s work is based on memories of events he has been involved in. Fascinated by the endless oscillation of the human condition, he looks at what can start as a triumph and turns into a manifesto of defeat, leaving a sense of what could have been. He distorts those phenomenons through diligent personal practice, leaving the viewer with a testament from the edges of his world.
Special thanks to Anne-Laure Franchette & Sandra Norma.
