IN SITU 2016 Artist: Bey Shouqi Hamidy

Welcoming our IN SITU artist-in-residence, Bey Shouqi Hamidy

Bey incidentally got involved with photography when he found his father’s old camera, and he has been working with photography ever since.

In 2014, he started exploring the relation between photography and text. He started his on going project, “On Newspaper Today”, where he created fake newspaper clippings and distributed them in local bus shelters.

Bey also exerts his interest in memory and explores how memory works in daily life, to the extend where photography is no longer able to help in recalling memories. For Bey, memory is unseparated from us – not because it is a way to survive, but because we are also the memories.

We are very glad to welcome Bey as our artist-in-residence during January to February, and we’ll update soon any event during this IN SITU period!
