Intimacy Through the Camera: Cherine Fahd in Conversation

About Intimacy Through the Camera: Cherine Fahd in Conversation

In this special conversation and screening event, Cherine Fahd will share an exclusive preview of her new video installation Ecdysis and discuss its themes, origin and process with project curators Daniel Mudie Cunningham (Carriageworks) and Jeff Khan (Performance Space).


Ecdysis is an enthralling performance-for-video installation that expands on recurring themes of intimacy, portraiture and desire that propel Fahd’s practice. The work also marks a major turning point in Fahd’s artistic trajectory and has informed a new body of performances and moving image works, created in the wake of both Ecdysis and the COVID-19 pandemic. In each of these works, Fahd creates intimate situations that play out for a camera’s gaze—and where the camera is a proxy for both the artist and the audience.

Join Fahd, Cunningham and Khan for this first glimpse of Ecdysis, and to reflect on the changing nature of our physical and emotional ties—with ourselves and with each other.

Performance Space and Carriageworks will present the full video installation of Ecdysis in late 2021-early 2022.

Duration: 90 minutes
