The series ‘broken monuments’ is taken from the overall body of work ‘I never revealed myself to them’, an extensive body of work with numerous iterations through which Ahmed examines masculinity(ies), its traditions and representations. Mining his father's personal photographic archive of sixty years he examines images in which his father was posing to explore manhood as he embodied it. In the studio Ahmed re-enacts these poses and photographs himself from all four sides isolating the figure from its original context leaving us with remnants of statue like figures and fragmented space.

EGITTO

Ahmed’s manipulations of materials are informed by research into the histories of peoples and objects. His works in photography, mixed media, sculpture and installation engage with subjects related to colonization, structures of power, cultural interactions and fluid identity, generating discussions around the idea of self and notions of authenticity within the parameters of the nation state. His work is held in many private collections and was recently acquired by the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart, Australia, the Kamal Lazaar Foundation, Tunis and the Kadist Collection, France.
