Muhannad’s work challenges old beliefs through the telling of new stories. He draws from myths, historical and religious narratives in order to reevaluate the past and its impact on our present. He uses ink, paper and film to restructure and present these re imagined narratives. He was born in Saudi Arabia to Syrian parents of Chechen & Cherkessian descent. He is currently attending a three month artists-in-labs residency in Zurich, researching water microbiome, its ecology and its parallels to the human organism.
