Basim Magdy

Basim Magdy, FEARDEATHLOVEDEATH, 2022

Ruins, astronauts and rockets, planes, soldiers, cranes and modernist structures all feature in the work of Basim Magdy (b. 1977, Egypt), in which he shares with us his satirical view of the world. His paintings, analogue films and installations reveal a dreamlike universe that is out of kilter. Fascinated by the subconscious and the absurd, Magdy plays with fragments, suggestion and atmosphere. The references are too numerous to mention, from slick advertising to science fiction and comic strips, from staid nature documentaries to the apocalyptic tone of bible stores. Past, present and future come together in poetic art that lies beyond the bounds of time as we know it, somewhere between reality and fiction.
