Name: Ahmed Badry


Badry (b. Egypt, 1979) works across sculpture, installation, moving image, often drawing that propose objects without utility, attempting to manifest usefulness. He homes in on people's microeconomics, tracing and investigating their structures. Badry`s practice stands at the crossroads of sociology, economy, and language.

The works are not documentary but offer robust portraits of people and places that are often invisible or hidden from the mainstream. He locates hybrid objects that exist independently of, and at times, avoid or use global systems.

Badry held MFA at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, 2020. In 2017, he completed the Home Workspace Program at Ashkal Alwan, Lebanon, and a BA in Art Education at Helwan University, Cairo, in 2003. Badry has also participated in residencies at Delfina Foundation, London, and Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris. Solo exhibitions include Portmanteau at Letitia Gallery Beirut, Lebanon (2018) and The Provisionary That Lasts at Medrar, Cairo, Egypt (2014). His upcoming group show at Les Abattoirs, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Toulouse, France, February 2021
