found Arabic 7" records, turntable, speakers, camera & projector
presented at Jogja National Museum, Yogyakarta, Indonesia for Biennale Jogja XII Equator #2: Not A Dead End, 2013
the work is a result of the artist residency program at Beirut art initiative, Cairo, Egypt during the month of October 2013 that was a part of the Biennale Jogja residency exchange program. inspired by the city of Cairo & the most popular icon at the moment General Abdel Fattah Sisi himself, hence the title--if you're an Egyptian, you might get it--the work stands as a satire comedy of the recent political life & situation of the country. the audiences could create their own combination of the broken-into-half C-shaped Egyptian records & make their own mix of composition. sometimes it creates a unique locked grooves that plays a loop over & over again. the audiences also could choose their own speed rather it a 45 or 33 revolution per minute. at the end, the artist left a note, "whatever mix of records you choose, just don't forget to dance to the revolution".
