Reopening on September 16 with new exhibitions.

Sarah Badr

September 16, 2022
— January 8, 2023

Sarah Badr has been commissioned to create a site-specific sound installation as a continuation of the on-going programming occurring in MOCA’s South Stairwell. Badr’s practice focuses on world creation, complex natural phenomena, and algorithmic media. Her new sound piece will be accompanied online by an audio-visual animation. Within these works she will develop a visual language that uses procedural systems for simulation and spatialisation in graphics and sound that explores the association between form and place in new digital spaces.

As a classically trained multi-instrumentalist and composer, Badr produces solo experimental works under the project name FRKTL. Her critically acclaimed album Excision After Love Collapses marks nearly a decade of fully independent, self-published work.

Badr is a British-Egyptian artist living in Riga. Her work has been presented internationally by several institutions and festivals including the Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien (Berlin), Herbert Art Gallery and Museum (Coventry), Société des arts technologiques (Montreal), Center for Arts, Design and Social Research (Boston), ISSUE Project Room (New York), Pasar Alkisah (Jakarta), Fjord Oslo (Oslo), Laval Virtual (Laval), CTM Festival (Berlin), MIRA Festival (Barcelona), Donaufestival (Krems an der Donau), PUSH Festival (Gävle). In 2021, her debut film Azimuth was shown in a stone-vaulted 14th Century undercroft at Coventry Biennial.
