Ahmed Badry

Ahmed Badry (b. Egypt, 1979) works across sculpture, installation, moving image and drawing. In his practice, he proposes 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. Badry holds an MFA from the Oslo National Academy of the Art 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) .
