Adam Farah will be streaming a live walk through the city they were born in and the borough they were raised in – London, Brent. During the event they might ask questions of the audience about desires, methodologies, memories, searching and desperation. 

The event is a practice and test in momentational ode-ing. A form of working and witnessing inspired by Mariah Carey’s theorisations around ‘the moment’ as a poetic disidentification with time (Carey, M. 2011).

 

Commissioned by Brent 2020, London Borough of Culture as part of Brent Biennial  and supported by Art Fund

They also practise under and within the name free.yard – an ongoing situational and unstable project set up to engage with and merge curatorial, research, artistic and equitable communal practices; with a focus on the ever-expansive and nuanced creative endeavours and potentials that emerge from endz. free.yard casts a side-eye onto the oppressive and supremacist structures upheld within the complacent and performative liberal bubbles of the artworld/s, and in the long term desires to create collaborative moments for artists to connect, manifest and exhale under such weight. http://freeyard.info
