Ahmad is an artist and researcher who cooks in between. He received his BA in visual arts from Jordan University studied drawing and painting at the Institute of Fine Arts, along with clothes-making in Amman, Jordan. His artistic practice is centered on deconstructing the quotidian or the politics of the everyday through an emphasis on its overlooked paradoxes, as an attempt to arrive at a consideration of the mundane. His artistic practice is also influenced by his passion for cooking, which manifests in cross-disciplinary projects that interrogate the production and consumption of food in relation to the constitution of space and social relations, as well as notions of absence and transience.


Work Statement:



If you decide to drop by, then do, if you don’t drop by, then don’t

It doesn’t matter to me, it doesn’t matter

If you want to love another then do, if you don’t love another then don’t

it doesn’t matter to me, it doesn’t matter

You are very well known with a high standing

I have much appreciation for you

But you leave and your love affairs are not allowed

And your excuses will not work with me


Twelve pairs of shoes:

If you pity me, then do. if you don’t, then don’t

It’s not easy for me, I don’t care

If you want to fight, lets!

If you don’t, that’s even better

That is not the issue, it’s not even an issue

Your love is selfish, certainly

And you think you are the only one and you’re stubborn

You say lonely and stubborn

What are you looking for?

Did you find it?

You are pushing it to the edge. the situation is tough

If you’re honest or not

What difference does it make!

That is not the issue, it’s not even an issue

If it matters to me then it matters, it doesn’t matter then it doesn’t

That is not the issue, it’s not even an issue



This song began

Since we have been at odds for six thousand years

And if time allows it would be kept a secret international scandal

If my night was ruined let it be ruined, if not…it’s a blessing.

You are not my night and this is not a story
