Salam Yousry's disfiguration

by Nour Team

Salam Yousry @salamyousry is a Cairo-based visual artist and filmmaker. 
Yousry engages in a contemplative process of observation through dissecting the relationship between the individual and the group. Attempting to explore both a singular element within the group and the group as a singular unit, the artist raises questions about how the body performs itself within the social sphere. Yousry constructs an understanding of the characters he is questioning through a process of disfiguration. This fracturing and rearrangement of the individual makes room for a reimagined, alternative narrative about his subjects.
