Ezz Monem: In Search of Mohamed

April 29 - May 21

Courtesy: the artist and THIS IS NO FANTASY, Melbourne.

THIS IS NO FANTASY is pleased to present Ezz Monem‘s first solo show with the gallery.

In Search of Mohamed is a set of multichannel videos and photography works using my first name ‘Mohamed’ as a starting point for my research.

The project explores the tension between reverence and the profane by creating a manifold portrait of Mohamed appropriated from Egyptian cinema, collected, viewed, archived and both digitally and manually manipulated to highlight the ghostly boundaries of representation.

Films have been collected based on specific criteria that involve the use of the name Mohamed, either as a fictional character, a symbolic representation in a religious film, or an actor’s real name displayed in the opening credits.
