London based Artist and Curator Ibrahim Azab shifts between Sculpture, Performance and Photography. Ideas of Process, perception, and information form the centre point of Azab’s practice whilst surrounding research of his work investigates the relationship between the subconscious and reality, material and immaterial within a hyper-consumer and visual culture. His work explores the photograph as object, through digital and physical intervention, with a focus towards the movement and transfer of visual language as abstract information. Significantly the work of Ibrahim Azab is concerned with failure and representation within the photographic medium, playfully surfacing the act of seeing and unseeing through phenomenological understanding of the surface.


Ibrahim Azab is also a member of Relvolv Collective - http://revolv.org.uk/about/
