Arash Fayez


Arash Fayez’s practice investigates conditions of displacement and notions such as statelessness, limbo, and in-betweenness. Spanning writing, performance, and video, his projects explore situations where the mind is in limbo and the body is in between; in other words, the mental and physical states resulting from being between two locations, two cultures, or two identities. Fayez’s practice looks at the segment that separates two conditions and directs the audience to neither one place nor another but to what can be found in between. His work is primarily based on autobiographical experiences interlaced with fictional and nonfictional content. By employing storytelling strategies, he combines fiction and documentary to construct an emotional landscape that resonates with the in-between.
