Urnamo – Ali Al-Fatlawi & Wathiq Al-Ameri

(IRAQ/SWITZERLAND)

IMG_0150.jpg

The performances of Ali Al-Fatlawi and Wathiq Al-Ameri reflect and challenge the West’s attitudes to Iraq and Iraqi culture – the fears and expectations and the dread arising from civil casualties, border-crossings and the psychological pressure expressed in physical gestures. The mortal as part of everyday life, dealing with war acts and the role of memory and lost lives in war are also important subjects expressed in their performances. Ali Al-Fatlawi and Wathiq Al-Ameri won the Performance Art Award Switzerland in 2011, which was followed more recently with the prestigious Swiss Art Award 2012.
