Left: But did you read? | Jumairy

durational performance, Ramadan 1 – 28 or 29 or 30, 2016, commissioned by DUCTAC

Jumairy draws inspiration for this work from his curiosity about the ways personal identity is formed. While engaging with the question of whether one’s sense of self is shaped to a greater extent by genetics or experience, he explores the differences in human development arising from varying – and sometimes false – interpretations of Islam. Jumairy will carry out this investigation through a daily performance in which he reads and writes passages from the Quran.
