Nadim Choufi, b. 1994, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon.
Choufi primarily works with video, 3D animation, and sculpture. His work spins around scientific progress and its non-neutrality, often focusing on the materiality of designed organisms, language, products, and bodies. His videos and installations draw upon various fields among them science fiction, synthetic biology, and economics to trace the influences behind the presumed objectivity of scientific progress and its soft and hard realities.
An alumnus of Ashkal Alwan Home Workspace fellowship, he exhibited his work regionally and internationally in Beirut Art Center, Abu Dhabi’s Warehouse421, Sharjah Art Foundation, The New School in New York, and Macao in Milan.
