Apókryphos | Cherine Fahd

Cherine Fahd

Apókryphos by artist Cherine Fahd is an artwork veiled as a book that guides us through the highly emotive ritual and experience of grief and mourning. Fahd reproduces 24 photographs of her grandfather’s funeral and burial in 1975. We are plunged into intimate diaristic poetic fragments, two creative texts as a ‘call and response’ between the artist and Daniel Mudie Cunningham which are connected to the images numerically annotated by hand, recalling memories and questions in personal historiographies that are by their nature brimming with subjectivity and speculation. It is a beautiful and tender tribute, and creative opportunity to which the artist credits a new understanding of ‘what it means to inherit.’
