Daydreams of the Drunken Scholar (Edition of 5), 28 min, Canada, 2012
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.
The entire production of Hannah’s latest project, Daydreams of the Drunken Scholar, took place over the course of a week, with two days devoted to gathering objects, three days for set construction, and the final two days for photographing and videotaping.
