Flexman’s work explores identity and context through a combination of video, print, drawing, and painting. Here, he investigates the stereotypes that govern our perception and engagement with the Arab world and how the stories and products pervasive in both Western and Arab societies act upon the way in which both cultural spheres understand each other.
This new collection of works follows a year long studio residency at Exeter Phoenix and ongoing co-operation with the University of Exeter’s Institute of Arab and Islamic studies.
