Faisal Karadsheh is a Jordanian-Palestinian multidisciplinary artist based between Tkaronto/Toronto and Abu Dhabi . His artistic practice explores how and why a body- which consumes space and assumes time - adapts, reproduces and constructs itself. Disparate narratives and tracings of skin, the in-between, collectivity, home, preservation, converge and arise to go beyond a singular conception of the body. Through a process of collecting material remnants such as consumer waste, food, traces of sounds, he ultimately works towards redefining sociocultural meanings around the intricate relationship within, and between, the body and its environment, seeking to conceive them as one.
Karadsheh's work spans across various media including painting, sound, video, installations, performance and xR, with his most recent presentations at the Toronto Arab Film Festival, Trinity Square Video and the Kingston School of Art.
