Khaled Kaddal is an interdisciplinary artist, raised in Egypt and currently resident in London. His hybrid practice includes computational media, sound, generative images and sculpture. Working with political and mythical narratives, his aesthetical research contemplates on two interdependent abstractions; ‘Immortality of Time’ and ‘Sovereignty of Space’, in search for the imperishable balance between intelligence, emotions and moral judgments in both digital and physical realities.
Recent solo show at Overgaden Institut for Samtidskunst, Copenhagen; group exhibitions include ’10 Years of Production’ at Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah; ‘What do you mean, here we are?’ at Mosaic Rooms Gallery, London; ‘Art Olympics’ at Tokyo Metropolitan ArtMuseum, Tokyo; Performances at ‘Keep quite and Dance’ at Cairotronica Symposium, Cairo; Zentrum der Kunster Hellerau, Dresden; and ‘Daily Concerns’ at Dilston Grove Gallery, London.
Kaddal has an upcoming show at 5th Biennale Internationale de Casablanca, Morocco; and a Resident Fellow at Uniarts Helsinki, Finland. He studied Computer Science at AAST (EG), and Sound Art at the University of the Arts London (UK).
This Visiting Fellowship will not take place physically in Oxford due to current lockdown and government guidance. Khaled Kaddal will therefore be joining us remotely to offer a series of events and activities that link to other projects and work they are undertaking at this time.
