Blackwater Ophelia (Edition of 7), 10 min, Canada, 2013

Adad Hannah is interested in the way the photographic moment is performed for a camera and his works often take the form of video-recorded tableaux vivants. Through his videos and photographs he explores the nexus of photography, video, and performance and how the human body occupies this space. Adad Hannah has produced commissioned projects for museums around the world and been exhibited and collected widely.

Blackwater Ophelia is inspired by the 1852 painting Ophelia by John Everett Millais.
