East of Elsewhere


The surgeon’s washroom at The others, Turin

Solo presentation with Fadi Al-Hamwi

1-4 November 2018

East of Elsewhere was selected to present works by Fadi Al-Hamwi in the site-specific section of The Others fair in Turin. Newly commissions and selected works by the artist were curated in the surgeon’s washroom of the former Maria Adelaide Hospital in the centre of the city. Video, photography and carved cow-hide mirrors confront the room’s history, reckoning with themes of reflection and the stakes of ablution. 

East of Elsewhere was awarded the 2018 Specific Section Curatorial Prize.
