Memory of Physical Essence is an exhibition of 25 works of photography, with digital photo manipulation, by Egyptian artist Marwa Adel, currently in the USA on a Fulbright Fellowship at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.


Why do people express such a fear from the physical body? How could we fear ourselves? Our bodies are the medium that links us to this world and reflects our souls. Every person enjoys a memory that registers facts different from other people. These memories and dreams are revealed within ourselves through body language, serenity, sadness, happiness and other reactions towards occurring events or recalled facts. Through our bodies, we can modify our memories that are often stereotyped according to other people’s experiences. We can also develop our memories and dreams through our human experience which represents a means for excellence, authenticity and distinctiveness to arise. Consequently, every person develops a personal memory enriched by the unique human existence that reflects on the body through which one can realize dreams. There is nothing impossible to achieve as long as the communication and interaction between the physical body and the memory are existent.
