SCREENING: ADAM FARAH, B-SIDES

Screenshot of Staples Corner Roundabout from Google Earth.

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).
