Assunta Abdel Azim Mohamed

solo exhibition

16 September – 21 October 2017

Assunta Abdel Azim Mohamed's powerful drawings are at once a satire of her millennial generation in Vienna and a deeper study of the human condition, a painful moral comedy, with death as a recurring subject. They are dense with incident and dense with allusion: to music, film, literature and art – as well as to anatomy and medicine. Baroque and Symbolist imagery combine with contemporary references. All this, alongside a Viennese knowledge of western and eastern European genres, gives her analysis of life breadth and acuteness.

At only 24 Assunta has won numerous awards, her works are in various private European collections and she is currently undertaking a major public commission. This will be her first exhibition in the UK.  

Assunta will, together with curator David Illington, speak about her work at a special evening event at the ACF London on Wednesday 11 October, 7pm.
